Tonight I decided to propose me as TU. My sponsor is Peter Lewis.
My name is Sebastien Lutttringer, i'm a 26 years old french system and
network engineer who lives in Paris.
I'm gradued from EPITA a french computer school and i work in a
private company for 4 years.
My day to day job is done on Linux Debian and 99% of our servers are
on Debian. We work mainly with open technologies and we love
challenges with technology that we control/understand.
As far as i recall, my first meet with linux, was in 2001/2002 (i
don't remember exactly)
with slackware and later with debian woody, it was just some test (not
my main system)
In 2005, i choose my grad school, in another for its hard Unix spirit.
I wanted to become a unix power user. So, 2005 was my switching year
I tested some distro and i choose debian as desktop station. In 2007,
i changed my main distro to gentoo until 2010 (and my new laptop)
where i switched to Arch.
I never really took the time to get involved to my distro and since a
long time i
want it. Arch philosophy and simplicity, remember me slackware and
makes me want to take the plunge.
Regarding my skills I use a lot of linux technology in my work to
design solutions to our problems (network operator, file transfer
platform, streaming/cdn) or to maintain our critical systems.
I also have skill in coding in C/C++, Python, Perl, lua, php, shell
and some others.
Regarding to arch, i maintain packages in AUR and fill bug report. I
also plan to propose some patch in some times.
As a TU, i would start by maintaining packages i use and which are not
in community. To start i think to:
After, I hope have enough time to more contribute to the distro and
perhaps become a dev. Maybe working on pacman i've some ideas of
can you please orphan the package cdu (
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=34752). As you can see (forwarded
message), the current maintainer does no longer want to maintain this
packages, I'd like to adopt it.

I am updating some python tarballs in the AUR which appear to
have been abandoned with the python switchover and don't have
python3 versions. I created some python2 versions, named
python2-foo, as this is what I thought was the correct practice,
but found out the main(core, extra) python packages are not being
renamed until python3 versions are available. So what is the
correct practice? Should the old python tarballs be deleted and
replaced by python2-foo versions or should the python tarballs
just be made to work with python2?
