My name is Caleb Maclennan (AUR moniker “caleb”, most other places “alerque”). I’m a long time Arch Linux user and AUR contributor looking to get more involved, and specifically to join the TU group so that I can help out with packages in [community]. I’m particularly interested in the Lua ecosystem (which thanks largely to @Daurnimator is much less of a mess than it was a year ago when I first started looking into becoming a TU, but could still use a helping hand) as well as anything related to font development or typesetting. As you’ll see I have some experience in FOSS, software packaging, and Linux in general, but maybe the most important thing is I can still learn and I’m open to learning and adapting so that my contributions are in cooperation with the rest of the community, not in conflict with it.
Two existing TUs, Daurnimator and Archange, have agreed to sponsor my application:
I hereby confirm my sponsorship.
I’ve known Caleb for a while around packaging of certain softwares, especially Mattermost, and I think he showed great knowledge and competences around our work and procedures. I’ve had a look at several of his other PKGBUILD in the AUR, and all of them appeared to be in great shape (they might of course be some minor nits here and there, but nothing outstanding to me).
I think it would be a great addition to the team, so let’s start the discussion period.
