And I said I would sponsor him.  

Loui is not a traditional TU candidate.  As he said, he does not 
maintain many packages in the AUR and will not be bringing many packages 
into the [community] repo.  However, he is interested in the development 
of the AUR and I have seen many patches he has submitted to the AUR 
codebase (see http://projects.archlinux.org/?p=aur.git;a=shortlog).  
 From the trusted user guidelines: "The Trusted User (TU) is a member of 
the community charged with keeping the AUR in working order."  I feel 
maintaining the AUR extends to developing and improving its codebase so 
it is a perfectly good reason to make him a TU.  Also, the few PKGBUILDs 
he does maintain look good (maybe a few cosmetic changes needed at 
most), so I am not worried about anything he would bring into the 
community repos.

Overall, I think Loui would be a good addition to the team. 

This starts the usual discussion period.
