I have written a Python application for Linux (you can find it here) which is currently included in the universe repository in Ubuntu. I have written Debian packaging for the application and use alien to generate RPM packages for Fedora, CentOS, etc.

I would like to have my application included in the Fedora repositories but I'm not sure what that process involves or even where to start.

Where do I begin?

This wiki page will guide you through the process

If you are not a package maintainer already, you might want to start from the start of the page.

Some notes on packaging for Python can be found here:

Do drop a mail on the fedora-devel mailing list to make sure you get someone to review the package!
