Not entirely sure what you mean -- there are 22 community packages
that have been orphaned. That's not a tremendous amount. Are these the
packages you meant, or are you counting all orphaned packages on AUR?
There are 1286 of those, but they aren't the responsibilty of the TUs
to maintain unless they want to.

(Just to clarify.)

Regardless, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt Arch if you attempted to become
a TU. I'm not one, but I recommend that you read the information about
how to become one if you haven't:

http://dev.archlinux.org/~simo/TUbylaws.html (read section on TU
Addition at least)
