Hello TUs and other listmates,

I am glad to sponsor Laszlo for his TU applicance. He is very active
on forums and this list, and I think his goals in making Arch Linux a
preferred Linux distribution for embedded Linux developers can make Arch more
popular. His packaging skills are very well, and I think he would be a
valuable team member.

So let us consider his applicance and discuss it in the next five days.

Regards, Stefan
