My guess is that it is because we tend to associate huge numbers of packages with not enough time to maintain them and thus lower quality (something I had discussed with him earlier). So I believe this to be more of an optimizing the changes of being a TU rather than a reassessment of priorities. Orphaning the several hundred vim plugins/themes only a couple of weeks after putting them there is a bit weird.
I don't vote on TU matters anymore, but I will put this out there. The recent spike in Laszlo's activities leads me to be concerned about longevity and some accuracy in his original application. He claims to be using Arch for ~1 1/2 years. But it was only two moths ago I saw him on IRC asking some fairly basic questions about pacman features and what was the equivalent to doing some emerge (Gentoo) operations. Two months also corresponds to his here registered on the forums. That concerns me, but I could be entirely wrong here.
1. This is a reassessment, really. I didn't know which time I will apply when I disowned those packages, so it's not a TU application related matter. I won't get those packages again after this application :) Well, I've just considered the suggestions from experienced TUs, not to maintain so much packages, but in better quality. This is my main purpose.
2. I've used earlier #archlinux.hu, Hungarian Archlinux IRC channel, and the Hungarian Unix Portal. You're right, I wasn't active on those sites some monthes/year ago. In that time I didn't deal with equivalent solution to do emerge operations. I wanted to know this super distribution, and hungarian archlinux community, and users.
