I'd like to apply for TU. I tricked Daenyth into sponsoring me.
Rocking since 1990 in Germany, I've been using Arch Linux for around two
years now and since I
seem to stick with it I thought I might as well become TU. I have past
experience in Suse, Debian, Ubuntu,
Fedora and DSL as well as a few minor ones (mostly spin-offs). I
currently have about 10 Arch installations
in all kinds of forms, virtual, chroot, desktop, laptop, incandescent gas.
Whenever I'm not busy trying to create another cdrkit vs. cdrtools flame
fest on the mailing list
I'm generally trying to be helpful on the wiki, forums, IRC and AUR. I
like being pedantic about things
like replaces() vs. conflicts() + provides() or $startdir/src vs. $srcdir.
In AUR I currently maintain 66 packages. My most important packages are
related though I tend to package whatever I think it useful or fun.
While I'm aware that many Archers
consider games wasteful in terms of time investment and disk space, I
think the number of votes on my
packages still make some of them same valid candidates for [community].
See my awe-inspiring list of packages:
I'm rather interested in Python and since PyPy might become more
important in the future I will continue
to take good care of that package.
I'm somewhat involved or at least interested in the upstream development
for some of my packages (SFML,
Ogre3D, SFML, Gobby, Bullet, Box2D, -gallium). I like trying out new
fancy things. I've used all major DEs
and a bunch of WMs. I maintain my own live distribution closely based on
Arch Linux and archiso (live.linux-gamers.net)
and in the process of creating it wrote the archiso article for the wiki.
I care about guidelines and consistency, though I am aware that my AUR
packages aren't all fully consistent. Working on that.
On LinuxTag 2010, I openly promoted my religion using my Arch shirt
together with a fellow Archer. We tried our best
to sound like the condescending Arch jerks that we are. Just kidding. We
showed-off Arch to quite a few people who
were interested, though. We met quite a few unrelated Archers on the
fair as well but they didn't seem to have as much
Arch-esteem as we did.
Is it true that the secret TU tower is where all the girls are kept?
I want to bring attention to the following packages:
flashrom-dev - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=30391
flashrom-svn - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23390
flashrom-svn-new - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=36865
They all build flashrom from the same svn repo. The second package was the first one uploaded to AUR, but it have been last updated 25 Aug 2009 and doesn't contain libftdi dependence. I think we should remove flashrom-dev and flashrom-svn-new and keep flashrom-svn (it has more votes after all).
I did not contact the maintainer of the second package, but judging by the last date he updated his packages (25 Aug 2009), hopes that he will come and update flashrom-svn aren't big at all. So I suggest orphaning the package as well.
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: should we even keep a possibly unstable version of an utility that may erase your BIOS is another question (:
Hi, my name is Laurent Carlier (lordheavy).
I would like to become a TU, so decided to go through the first step : find a
I'm a linux user since '98, archer for about 2 years now (i've got some
mandrake/debian/LFS/openbsd/...) and i'm adept of free software and KISS
Got knowledges about c/c++/bash/autotools/cmake/git/svn/..., and currently an
active developper of the gambas project. I maintain some packages in aur see
I've proposed a PKGBUILD for a splitted gambas2 package see
Feel free for questions :-)
The inkscape-nognome package
(http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=13145) is obsolete, does not
work (it depends on libpoppler 0.12, current is 0.14) and is also not
needed either because inkscape on [Extra] does not depend on gnome anymore.
Thus I think it is safe to remove it.
Thank you !
This package - to be found here http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=22502 - is obsolete. If you go to the project's url, you see, that the git repo is deprecated and linked to the site of the package cmus-git.
I'm requesting that "libcamp-git"
(http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38213) be removed for the time
being. The packager appears to be inexperienced and currently MAKING the
package results in pollution of the user system if the user has root
permissions. If not, the package fails to build.
I notified the maintainer in the comments and I'm unsure if I'm being
unfair by already bringing this up on the mailing list since he appears
to be inexperienced but what the package does is rather dangerous.
