My name is Remi Gacogne, and I hereby apply to join the Trusted Users team, kindly sponsored by Levente Polyak and Morten Linderud
My main motivation for becoming a TU is however not to move those, but to relieve the workload of other TUs by helping maintain and/or adopting existing community packages. For obvious reasons I have already discussed adopting the powerdns and powerdns-recursor packages from anthraxx, but I would also be interested in adopting some orphans here and there, like for example hiredis, libopenraw and nsd. I should also mention that being a TU would be very useful to my work on the security team, since I would then be able to help fix critically vulnerable packages. My preferred, old-fashioned, way of keeping track of packages updates is to subscribe to mailing-lists, but I have come to appreciate the use of tools like nvchecker in doing so as well :)
I'm happy to see you (finally) apply to become a TU! We've indeed met during Chaos Communication Congress, during FOSDEM if I'm not mistaken.
Remi has been part of the security team since the beginning and has always contributed high quality reports. Working together with him has always been a great experience and I look forward to what he can bring to Arch as a TU.
