Thanks for you application and good luck!
- I maintain some packages on the AUR.
I looked over them and they generally seem fine. The only weird part I have found is this install script that symlinks `/usr/bin/clipboard` to `/usr/bin/cb` in 3 packages. Why did you pick this solution?
This is something originally done by upstream in the Cmake build instructions file  since this is how upstream decided to handle the possibility to run both the `clipboard` and `cb` command. Obviously, it results as a permission issue when built with `makepkg` (since it tries to modify something outside of the `pkgdir`) preventing me to deal with that directly in the PKGBUILD as well. So to stay as close as possible to the upstream packaging method I deported that symlink instruction to a post install script.
I imagine there's certainly a more elegant way to deal with this symlink, I'll look into it.
- More recently, I've been working with Rudra Saraswat (the Ubuntu Unity project lead) to help him properly packaging the Unity desktop environment for Arch (this is still a WIP) .
Nice, I looked over the original packaging and was disappointed in the package quality. Hopefully it will shape up nicely in the future.
Yeah, I left a comment on the AUR web page of the initial Unity package (which has been deleted since then) to point out what could/should be improved regarding the packaging guidelines/best-practices and eventually offer my help to Rudra to properly package Unity for Arch; and this is how we started to work together on this.
For the moment, all of the Unity packages has been moved to a dedicated pacman repo . As I said, this is still a WIP I'm looking forward to continue on with Rudra. Hopefully it will shape up nicely in the future, indeed :)
As a TU, I'm looking forward to help with the AUR moderation (reviewing PKGBUILDs, answering AUR related questions and handling AUR requests).
I'd also be interested in moving the following AUR packages to Community:
Is this covered under the "protonmail" trademark? Can we redistribute this with the name "protonmail"? Is there any other terms or restrictions on this?
It is indeed copyrighted under the "Proton AG" trademark, but the protonmail-bridge app itself is distributed (and allowed to be redistributed/modified) under the GPL3 license  so I'd say we should be allowed to redistribute it with the name "protonmail"? I didn't thought about that (yet) to be honest but I'll search deeper into it if I ever have the chance to move it to community.
- unrar-free (which I currently maintain)
I had similar concerns with `unrar`, but it seems like Fedora and Ubuntu is packaging this. I'd assume this should be safe then.
Indeed, this one is already packaged by several other distributions, so it should be fine.
Finally, those are the packages I use and/or I'd be interested in (co-)maintaining in Community:
- zathura* (zathura, zathura-cb, zathura-djvu, zathura-pdf-mupdf,
A few of these have two maintainers already, is there any orphaned packages you would like to maintain in the repositories? Keep in mind that any packages in [extra] is not accessible to TUs currently, but the plan is for this to change.
Indeed, my bad. Here's a stripped-down list of packages that only have one maintainer currently:
- glow - xautolock - hq - hexchat - zathura suite (zathura, zathura-cb, zathura-djvu, zathura-pdf-mupdf, zathura-pdf-poppler, zathura-ps) - icewm - firewalld - picom - notification-daemon - blueman - redshift - gsimplecal - tint2 - feh
I haven't found any packages I personally use or would want to maintain in the community/extra's orphaned packages at first glance to be honest, but I could still adopt some if needed. As I said, my primary goal with this application is to contribute/help further :)
