Yes, most definitely.  As I mentioned in my earlier introductory email,
I've been packaging for other operating systems for awhile now, but
would like to contribute to Arch.  I have an x86_64 machine as well as
several i686 machines.  I've been lurking here for 3-4 years and have
been building my own packages from time to time so I'm pretty
comfortable with the process.

I understand.  I plan to adopt some orphaned PKGBUILDS in AUR, but in
the meantime it seemed like there was a need and so I thought I would
jump in and help.
