Long story short - I am insterested in becoming a Trusted User and
taking care of packages related to D programming language.
I have been using Arch Linux for last ~5 years but that does not really
matter as I have never spent any considerable time maintaining packages.
What does matter though is that I am quite active member of D community
and familiar with minor details about its current infrastructure and
have personal interest in improving user experience in that domain.
I have been maintaing reference D compiler package (dmd2) in AUR
before its inclusion into main repositories and kept contacting
Sven-Hendrik with various improvement proposals after. At some point
in the relatively long mail thread he has suggested to make a TU
application so that I can take over those packages and maintain them
directly - which is the primary motivating reason behind this mail.
As my general competence level as a packager relatively low I am
planning to solely focus on domain I am proficient with - D compilers,
libraries and notable applications. Also contacting with D maintainers
in other distros to ensure reasonable consistency.
