pyvmomi now available in Fedora 19 20 and 21

Back in 2005 I got into making RPMs for Fedora, and by 2006 I became a sponsored packager. It was a hobby I really enjoyed, but back in 2009 or 2010 I just got too busy with work and had to pass the baton. About a month and a half ago I was looking for issues on the pyvmomi project that I could help close when I found this one asking for help making an RPM for Fedora. I got excited all over again about making RPMs so I made one and headed down the path to become sponsored again to package for Fedora. I created this bug report and became re-sponsored, and after a lengthy process I am happy to report that pyvmomi is now available in Fedora 19, 20, and 21. It is still in the testing phases for EPEL 6 and 7 but in another week or so should be available there as well. This puts us one step closer to being able to port the current OpenStack driver for vSphere to pyvmomi!
