Isn't about "code fascism" is about to do our best effort, working
code isn't enough, in fact is average, but install vs cp + mkdir is
always a suggestion that many people had in their applications, and it
wasn't the point to be rejected.

In my point of view, Jens should prepare a better application,
explaining what are they goals, why he wants to become a TU, and how
he will benefit AUR and community, that's all.

For Jens: Better luck the next time, and don't feel dissapointed, try
to focus on a better application next time, ;)
