Good question,  I would really like to bring pianobar, archlinux-lxdm-theme,
ttf-symbola, termite-git, and livestreamer.   

One of the big reasons I would like to be a TU is to help.  There are
5586 packages in community, and 34 TU's listed on [1] which is just
over 164 packages per TU.  

Basically my goal as a TU is to do my best to help archlinux and the
aur be the best that it can and to give back to the great community
that has evolved around Archlinux.
