Looking at things, none of your AUR packages are really candidates for
Community. The guideline is 10 votes.

So let's look at the accessibility side of things. I was going to suggest
contacting the maintainers of the packages you are interested in to see if they
would like help, but 2 of the 3 packages you list are in Extra, which TUs don't
have access to.

This all leaves me confused. The first thing I would suggest is to figure out
exactly what you want to do as a TU.
