> I'm generally trying to be helpful on the wiki, forums, IRC and AUR. I

> like replaces() vs. conflicts() + provides() or $startdir/src vs. $srcdir.
> In AUR I currently maintain 66 packages. My most important packages are
> multimedia/game development
> related though I tend to package whatever I think it useful or fun.
> While I'm aware that many Archers

> I'm rather interested in Python and since PyPy might become more
> important in the future I will continue
> to take good care of that package.
> I'm somewhat involved or at least interested in the upstream development
> for some of my packages (SFML,
> Ogre3D, SFML, Gobby, Bullet, Box2D, -gallium). I like trying out new
> fancy things. I've used all major DEs
> and a bunch of WMs. I maintain my own live distribution closely based on
> Arch Linux and archiso (live.linux-gamers.net)
> and in the process of creating it wrote the archiso article for the wiki.
> I care about guidelines and consistency, though I am aware that my AUR
> packages aren't all fully consistent. Working on that.
> On LinuxTag 2010, I openly promoted my religion using my Arch shirt
> together with a fellow Archer. We tried our best
> to sound like the condescending Arch jerks that we are. Just kidding. We
> showed-off Arch to quite a few people who
> were interested, though. We met quite a few unrelated Archers on the
> fair as well but they didn't seem to have as much
> Arch-esteem as we did.

To be honest, I really have been waiting for this day. You are so amazingly active here in the mailing list and you always seem to be very competent. I wish you the very best!
