But a lot of us miss the days when 100 votes was enough to get an AUR
package into [community]. These days, votes are meaningless and a proper
package will go into [community] if and only if it is used by an
existing TU. I'm not saying this is a bad thing but it increases the
number of TU candidates looking to make minor contributions.

FWIW I have found graysky helpful in the past, particularly with regard
to Xfce issues.
