and unlike wizzo said he doesnt just move the PKGBUILD from unsupported but
also changes the build function if he finds that nessecery. I clearly
remember that
when he grabbed my dwm PKGBUILD to community for example.
My only abjection about his packages is that probably some/many are not used
that much
to be in community. The same thing happened until lately with developers
moving thing
 in extra too. Now they are supposed to ask before moving them. Maybe a
similar approach
 is needed for TU's too?

Since he updates his packages regularly, this is bound to change, at least
for the active
Furthermore now that its noted. Its not a valid reason for me since we are
dealing with binary
On the other hand, if the voting is mandatory for an active TU Sergej should
start voting.
