He also maintains a LOT of packages in Fedora. He used to keep a list here, but it was a pain to maintain. A full list can be found here: https://src.fedoraproject.org/user/spot

Pkgdb has this list: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/spot?acls=owner&acls=commit (some things I only co-maintain, or are dead packages now)
