[aur-general] TU Application.

Hey all!

I'm applying for a TU position, hopefully you'll consider me. My
sponsor is Anders Bergh (anders).

I go by the name Daenyth, and I've been using Linux for several years.
I started on Slackware and switched to Arch about a year and a half
ago. I'm 20, and I work as a sysadmin/tech support/office monkey at an
ESL school in Boston. During my free time, I love listening to tons of
music, chilling on IRC, and playing video games, among other things. I
especially love playing around with pretty much anything Linux

Right now I only maintain a handful of packages in the AUR[1], but I
plan to expand what I have. One of my goals is to package lots of new
software for Arch. I want Arch to be _the_ distro people talk about
for package selection. I love the way Arch is designed, and the KISS
philosophy, and I want to give back to the community that's been so
wonderful to me. Currently my most popular package is "pkgtools". It's
a bundle of things that I've written relating to arch packages. After
collaborating with another author, I'll be including spec2arch, which
is a tool aimed at helping developers provide basic PKGBUILD files
from rpm .spec files. I also maintain a few Perl related packages, and
hope to increase their number. I am one of the co-maintainers for the
arch-games project[2]. For those who don't know, it's a user repo to
provide binary packages for all the games in AUR, so that our users
can more easily install them (many have long compile times or are
otherwise annoying).

Thanks for your consideration,
