I'm not sure if I should take part in the discussion, as my application
also hasn't specified anything besides packages I want to maintain, but…

As long as I understand (not only) your need of privacy, I would like to
know a bit more about you. Where do you live and what are you doing when
not working on Arch stuff? You don't have to be very precise, I'm just

Why do you think that e.g. monitorix will be good addition to
[community]? It doesn't look very different from munin or collectd; I
haven't encountered it in other distributions. Fine, it's all about
willingness to maintain yet another package, but 53 votes doesn't
indicate anything.

Among pointless bug reports such as executable bit on icon file, you
helped me at least once (sorry, I have bad memory. :p) with ufw.service,
so I can assume you are active not only on our bugtracker. Additionally
I had kernel26-ck on my desktop for some time; modprobed_db was useful
too (while it's quite ugly solution).

Still, you didn't tell much about your plans after becoming a TU. I hope
you keep an ace up your sleeve.
