I'm Morgan, Morganamilo in most places and I'd like to apply to become a Trusted User with dvzrv and kpcyrd's sponsorship.
I've been an avid Arch user for the past 5 or so years. I started dipping my toes into the community with some wiki edits, bug reporting and submitted my first AUR package back in 2017.
I also love FOSS as a whole, I contribute to random projects here and there, participate where I can and just love the community aspect.
These days my main involvement with arch is pacman and the AUR.
I started contributing to pacman 3 years ago. Adding stricter pkgbuild linting and fixing a bug here or there. Fast forward to now and I'm one of the maintainers of pacman as well as maintaining the rust bindings for libalpm.
On the AUR side I co developed yay, developed paru and also have contributions in pretty much every current AUR helper.
So I pretty know the AUR/pacman/makepkg inside out.
Some other things I do in and around Arch are:
* I maintain a handful of AUR packages * I'm a moderator for the r/archlinux subreddit * I'm a (bit inactive) Bug wrangler * I also maintain a handful of pacman/AUR oriented rust/go libraries * I also go and bug AUR maintainers about broken pkgbuilds
I'm a big fan of rust, so a lot of the packages I wish to maintain are rust related. A lot of it is there in the repos already So I'd be looking to co maintain:
* rust-analyzer * rust-bindgen * rustup * cargo-audit * cargo-bloat * cargo-edit * bat * ripgrep * discord (I maintained the AUR package before it was in community) * dolphin * packagekit (Mostly just to help with patching it for new alpm compat)
And the packages I would like to add to community are:
* git-delta * cargo-asm * vim-rust (aur: vim-rust-git. has no releases, will ask upstream) * magic-wormhole * vim-coc * discord-canary (technically beta software but is official and intended for public use)

I'm looking forward to sinking my teeth into Arch even more. It's a great community and I've thoroughly enjoyed my time so far.
