Wow what an outcry! I think he got it!

Massimiliano, I saw you have some ruby packages in your github repo, but
you did not mention ruby as a language you have skills in. I think we lack
someone with that skill.

Sven-Hendrik, do you sponsor Massimiliano? And do you mind to let the
discussion period begin? (Yes, I am a nitpicker)

I maintain pngcrush in AUR and thought myself to bring it to [community].
The main reason for not doing so was that we have optipng there, which does
entirely the same as pngcrush.

Regards Stefan
