It really depends. Make sure you learn most he packaging tricks and
contribute to AUR. Once you are confident you know most tricks in the
book and you think we are also confident you did, get in contact with
one of the current TUs and ask them to sponsor you.
Alternatively you may ask one at some point what they think you should
improve before you apply to increase your chances.
