I agree. Thank you for packaging doctl.

This "effort" sounds amazing. I don't personally care if it is a new SIG
or part of the cloud SIG. Unfortunately I don't have much to offer other than
guidance and moral support. I can definitely help test the packages on the
clouds I use too.

Either way thanks for reaching out and trying to build a community for this
effort in Fedora.
