Hello Allan!

1. This is a reassessment, really. I didn't know which time I will apply
when I disowned those packages, so it's not a TU application related matter.
I won't get those packages again after this application :) Well, I've just
considered the suggestions from experienced TUs, not to maintain so much
packages, but in better quality. This is my main purpose.

2. I've used earlier #archlinux.hu, Hungarian Archlinux IRC channel, and the
Hungarian Unix Portal. You're right, I wasn't active on those sites some
monthes/year ago. In that time I didn't deal with equivalent solution to do
emerge operations. I wanted to know this super distribution, and hungarian
archlinux community, and users.

Best Regards,
Laszlo Papp
