Hiya! Jerome convinced me to finally apply for TU, and Sven-Hendrik agreed to co-sponsor my application (both Cc'd).
I'm a generalist that works on free software full time. I maintain the following AUR packages:
I also maintain a third-party Arch repo and oversee some automation for helping to build and publish new packages:
I'm also the upstream maintainer for several packages in community, including wlroots, sway, and scdoc; and I maintain numerous packages for Alpine Linux as well. I maintain many other free software projects, most notably sourcehut, and I also contribute to many projects maintained by others as well.
I think Jerome has been hoping for some relief from the packages I maintain the upstream for, so I may start by relieving that burden. I'd also like to move the samuari package into community, and likely some of the Python packages from my third-party repository as well.
Outside of packaging, I have also been doing some exploratory work that I hope will lead to finally moving Arch Linux from SVN to git.
As a long time fan and user of Arch Linux, I'm looking forward to the chance to give back to the community. If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

I confirm my co-sponsorship. Let the discussion period begin!
