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.

Hi György,

Thank you for applying. I think you will be a great contributor.

I looked at your AUR packages and saw that you are maintaining the unity 
desktop. I never used this desktop environment, but as a curiosity is it 
something you want to eventually bring into [community] ?

I am looking forward to having you join the TUs team.
