I've been playing for a while with the thought to apply as a Trusted
User, but I never really had the courage to do so, well now I try it.

About my person:
I'm a 1990 born student from the south of Germany, I study Computer
Science(first semester) and use Arch as my main system now since two
years and 4 days. I'm mainly active in the german part of the community
as the international forums and IRC are too lively for me to actively
participate a lot, so I mostly only read the topics, but don't post
in the threads. However I read nearly every mail at the mailing lists
(except for the ones concerning problems of Users with software I
haven't used in years e.g. KDE), but as my opinion was often already
stated I don't feel that I have to repeat what's already been said, so
I mail rarely to the lists too.

About my skills:
I'm programming in C since a few years, though I mostly review code in
order to learn more, I'm also capable of the basics with python 2.5,
several BASIC dialects, C++, Objective C, Java and of course shell
scripting. Whereas the focus for the next years lies upon C and Java as
they're both needed by my study.

About my packages:
I maintain 10 packages in AUR[1], whereby I also participate in the
development of the i3 window manager to whom's project family 6 of
these packages belong(3 projects, each as stable and git package), the
other four are the git package of the newsbeuter feedreader and the
cococpp package which is a build dependency for the previously named,
structorizer which is a Java program to design structograms (or Nassi-
Schneiderman diagrams) and a mecurial package for objfw which is a
portable framework for the Objective C language, not one of them was
adopted. If you want to see their history, I also keep them in a git
repository at github.com[2].

About my Application:
I asked Stefan Husmann if he would like to sponsor me and he agreed to
do so. I have two Arch systems, my laptop running an i686 installation
and my desktop machine running a x86_64 installation, both run without
the testing repository. As I have to use Java and corresponding util-
ities for my study I'd take care of orphanages of the Java development
segment, but also orphans in the topics I'm mainly interested in(window
managers, development and networks). And as I check my mail whenever
it's possible I'd also help with the request of users regarding the
administration of the AUR.

If you want to search for me, my nick at Arch related sites is Atsutane.
