[aur-general] TU Application

Part (Mateusz Herych) decided to sponsor my TU application.

My name is Bartłomiej Piotrowski. I live in Szczecin (Poland). I learn
and work here.

I'm a Linux user since 2005 when I bought Suse 9.3 on 4 CDs. My
hardware was too cheap to run it comfortably, so I gave up. I changed
my computer in 2008, and after a year with Ubuntu and Debian I decided
to install Arch.

Arch is a perfect distro for me for many reasons - it has clean
dependencies, it's bleeding edge and I don't need to compile anything
(but if I want, it's not a problem). I forgot to mention KISS and the
great community. It's just obvious to me. ;)

I maintain 21 packages in AUR[1]. Only 3 were submitted by me, and the
rest was orphaned and/or untidy - corrected by me, now they follow
packaging guidelines. Every package has some votes and is tested on my
machines. One of them, mplayer2[2] was taken to [community] by Stéphane
Gaudreault. I was also contributing to it from time to time.

I'm a coordinator and (the only one) Polish translator of Arch projects
in Transifex[3]. Pacman translation is not ready for the 4.0 release yet,
and I hope it will be done in some time. I had to skip dev/TU specific
strings in my AUR translation - it's hard to translate something
without knowledge about context.
I help people from the Polish community board. When Polish Wiki works
(now it doesn't), I translate small articles.

I know basics of C, C++ and Perl, but I'm not a programmer. I juggle
between school and sysadmin job in a small hosting[4]/shell[5] company.
(We currently work on the website.) I (co)administer 5 machines, 4 Debian
ones (2x hosting, Nagios, and Xen) and 1 Gentoo one (shell).

If I become a TU I would be interested in adopting simple-scan and
mpdscribble in

That's all, I hope I mentioned everything.
