[aur-general] TU Application - György Balló

Hello everybody,

I'm applying to be a Trusted User.

I'm a 24 years old Hungarian web developer, and I'm using Arch Linux as my main system since 2010 summer. Before that I used a Debian-based distro for one year. In my free time I like surfing on the net, contributing to OpenStreetMap, bicycling, hiking, take photos about trams, and of course, packaging. 

I really like Arch Linux's transparency, the pacman and the build system, the website and the great wiki. I'm maintaining packages[1] a long time ago, and I already contributed to wiki by creating a page about libcanberra[2], and updated, extended some other articles.

I reported many issues[3] with GNOME packages (including upstream and packaging bugs) to make Arch Linux better. I usually try to find the solution and send patch to upstream if needed before open bug reports. I helped to Ioni e.g. on updating some C# packages, and I also cooperated with AndyRTR on splitting out extensions from libreoffice

I currently have 150 packages in AUR with a total of 5775 votes. I already maintain more than 200 packages as source packages on github[4] and as built i686 packages in my [ayatana] repo[5]. I don't want to move all of these packages to [community], only the popular ones. I always try to make the best packages and I hate poorly written PKGBUILDs.

Some packages that I would like to add to [community]:
- deja-dup (115 votes)
- gwibber (299 votes)
- pinta (186 votes)

Some orphan packages in [community] that I could adopt:
- agave
- buoh

My goal with becoming a TU is to provide more popular GTK+ applications in [community] and keep GNOME stable and consistent by fixing packages on large updates if needed. I hope that I could support Arch Linux as a TU in the next months and years.

Alexander Rødseth is my sponsor.

Best regards,
György Balló
