Hi Evangelos, you seems to be known for me(maybe on IRC @ #archlinux ;-D).
Well, I reviewed your packages and I found this:
* Remove this (vim tag) # vim:set ts=2 sw=2 et: from your packages.
* gcompris, gnome-hearts, movic, xdotool: Maintainer tag is just for TUs
(if this become a reality then you can change again to Maintainer, but
consider to do this change to the next release)
* gnalert: license is an array, change license="GPL" by license=('GPL')
Now let me ask few questions, what are your plans becoming a TU?
Adopting orphaned packages in community?, move some AUR packages to
community (which ones?), help developing/patching AUR?.
Btw you missed to point us to your AUR link or at least your nick in AUR
(foutrelis), i guessed by your e-mail address ;).
