And this is why I don't think you should become a TU. Your deletion
mania was a bit too big. You asked for package deletion obviously
without reading the PKGBUILDs and other files in the packages and
without comparing packages enough.

If you send a removal request to the mailing list as a normal user
then a TU can first make sure if a package can indeed be removed, but
if you were a TU then you could remove those packages by yourself
without asking another TU first.

So I don't think you should be a TU until you proof that you learned
reading PKGBUILDs and that you deal with packages not owned by yourself
trustworthily. I don't see this, yet.

And I don't want my packages be removed from AUR just because you think
they can be removed because of a pointless reason. See again your
removal request for alevt and alevt-dvb. Packages are not the same just
because a part of the package names is identical.
