> Hi!
>  My name is JD Horelick and i'd like to become a TU. I'm 23 and working
>  as a sysadmin for a decent-sized company (linux and windows stuff).
>  I first started with ArchLinux in early 2007 (if i had to guess) and
>  ever since then, i've loved it. I think pacman is quite possibly the
>  greatest package manager i've used and i think the PKGBUILD package
>  format is quite nice. I haven't done a crazy amount of development on
>  Arch, but i've been using linux since 1999 and i was a Debian
>  Developer for ~3 years (where i maintained 10-15 packages).
>  As a TU I will offer my knowledge, skills and time to improve my
>  favourite distribution and it's packages.
>  Some of my specific goals as a TU are:
>   * Work on expanding the community repo (for example, clutter is in
>  community, but clutter-gtk, clutter-cairo and clutter-gtk are still in
>  AUR :(  ).
>   * Make sure packages in AUR/community are working. For example, i
>  tried to build dpkg (i think...It's late) from aur a bit ago and the
>  URL changed, if i was a TU (and i will probably do this tomorrow
>  anyway), i would email the guy and say like: "Hey, please fix the 404
>  on your package or i'm going to take it over".
>   * My goal is to upload, fix or update a minimum of 1 package a day.
>  In my free time I like...wait...I have free time? ahh...but seriously,
>  in my free time...Well...I'm a atypical computer geek...I like
>  watching me some movies/TV, playing video games...goin out and doing
>  some parkour...having fun. Oh, and tacos...Tacos FTW!
>  The final thing, Allan was so kind as to sponsor my application and
>  here is the list of packages i have uploaded to the AUR:
>  http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?SeB=m&K=jdhore
>  Let's start up the inquisition :P Any questions and suggestions will
>  be answered as quickly as possible (I'm usually around from 1PM EST to
>  5AM EST daily).
>  Thank you all very much. I very much hope to become part of the Arch team.
>  Sincerely,
>  JD
