I suppose I could have phrased that better... I don't have a sponsor yet 
(I'm still working on that) and I'm not asking for immediate 
consideration for this position (although I wouldn't turn it down). I 
was simply introducing myself and giving you all a chance to get to know 
me and my work while things settle down with your new TUs.

As for what I would do as a TU? I'd definitely look into adopting a few 
orphaned packages in community, and I'd like to see one of my packages 
(bashrun) eventually find its way into community. I would also be more 
than happy to help out with any projects that could use an extra hand 
(or another pair of eyes).

I've spoken to a few of you on IRC (some quite a bit more than others) 
and a few of you have walked through some of my PKGBUILDs with me... I 
think that the TUs that see me online can (I hope) attest that I am 
always looking for someone to help or some project to work on. Like I 
said in my initial email, the community has given so much to me, I think 
it only fair that I now try to return that favor.
