the keypoint is that everyone who wants to be a packager (including mandriva
packagers) needs some training (mentoring), so, the best way is to subscribe
to the mailing-lists, note yourself on the packaging team on the wiki, and try
to find a mentor, if you're a mandriva packager, it should be a fast process
(ie: just the differences between mdv and mga), and perhaps you will be
available to mentor anyone else afterwards.
AFAIK jq (jquelin) can still mentor someone. (there is a thread for that as
i will note that it is FOSDEM atm, and alot of devs and founders will be
there, so you might not get quick responses.
