I'm glad you cleared up your strong statement about fixing packages.  I 
hope it was just a case of being overly keen and taking a step too 
far...  such situations should always be dealt with through the bug 
tracker for community packages and as a comment on the AUR for 
unsupported packages.  We have a policy in place about the process of 
orphaning a package in the AUR.

But I'm afraid you are going to have to be a bit more specific about you 
being an ex Debian developer if you want anyone to vote for you.  There 
is also no mention of you in the changelogs of gftp and conky.  This 
experience was a primary factor in my choosing to sponsor you despite 
having few packages in the AUR.  With that being questioned, your whole 
application is on very, very shaky ground, which is more than a bit 
embarrassing for me as your sponsor.
