Hi all,

I'm interested in becoming a TU.

I used Arch only for one year and a half but 4 for Linux (Ubuntu before). I
submitted my first package by the end of last year, and maintain more and
more during the last a few months. I am eager to maintain packages that
loved and needed by Chinese users as I am one too, such as input
methods(fcitx-*, ibus-*, sunpinyin, libpinyin, etc), internet supplicant in
Chinese universities(mentohust/ruijieclient), chat tools qq
related(linuxqq, webqq, libqq*, etc) and popular proxy tools (sshuttle,
goagent, etc). And I am also a python programmer and maintaining more than
20 python libraries I use for now. I am also active in reporting and
following issues upstream, such as pidgin-lwqq [1].

As I looked after more and more packages on AUR I found many users not so
convenient to install so many packages in AUR, so I joined archlinuxcn's
community repository project [2] to provide popular packages in binary. But
this is not good for user to involve in (such as flag out-of-date, report
bugs, etc).

I am also an IT manager in work, and maintaining several Arch servers.

Some more info about me: 21, male, Wuhan in China, working in a startup,
not very good at C and English.
