I think Cédric's suggestion isn't daft at all. TUs really should be people who 
have a good experience of using Arch Linux and have the neccesary skills to 
build and maintain packages. It's not at all about being famous, IMO. (I 
hardly think I was, nor am I now!)

Seriously, if you or anyone else is interested in there being certain packages 
in [community] (and they fulfill the requirements) and you have the skills, 
please do apply :-)

We said a while back, I think, that we'd rather have more TUs maintaining 
reasonable numbers of packages, and packages that they use, than a small 
number of TUs with too much on their plates.
