Currently I'm using Archlinux as my primary operating system for over 6
years and for several years I'm maintaining a small number of packages in
AUR[1]. I also keep a repository with arch packages for everyone to use[2]
and view the pkgbuilds on github[3]. Originally the repository got created
so i could easily install some non-{core,extra,community}-packages on my
different computers.

Some personal stuff: born 1982, webdeveloper (php, with some jquery tricks),
mad about all sorts of metal music, and loving to watch movies and sitcoms.
I live in Belgium so I should speak at least Dutch, French and German but i
speak and write Dutch, English, bad French, very bad German.

I would like to become a TU for several reasons:

- bring in some packages from AUR to community
  - apper (kde packagekit frontend, the gnome/gtk ones are already in)
  - lcdproc (drive your lcd displays)
  - closure-{compiler,linter} (googles javascript toys)
  - vim-qt (or provide a patch for addition to the extra package)

 as reference, some packages i was maintaining in AUR were already
 picked up
  - clementine (picked up by Stéphane Gaudreault)
  - par2cmdline (picked up by Sébastien Luttringer)

- pick up some orphans from community
  - v8 (this is the only one from the list i'm currently using)

- usualy i'm reading most of the issues reported so i could help
  sorting the "tickets" and assign them to their respective owners

Last but not least, my sponsor is Stéphane Gaudreault.
