[aur-general] Looking for a sponsor

In October 2011 I sent an email to register my interest in becoming a
TU [1] (thinking that was the next step to get involved) and I
received some helpful responses of how I can be more involved with
Arch, without jumping in as a TU right away.

Over the last 10 months my AUR packages have continued to grow as I
found time to look after more. I currently maintain 58 packages [2]. I
often get in contact with upstream to help with any queries or issues
and feel that I do a good job staying on top of everything. I'm not on
IRC much, but I keep a very close eye on mailing lists, the forum and
what's going on in the AUR. Generally I stay quiet and get on with it
and only make a noise if necessary or to help someone.

I am hoping for some further guidance now, and hopefully for a TU to
take me under their wing to get me closer to becoming a TU, as I would
love to maintain some of my packages in [community] such as
gsimplecal, partclone, obkey, scratch and some games, and also some
packages I do not maintain like dvdbackup and clonezilla. I am a fast
learner so should not be much of a burden.

Many thanks,
