I don't understand the sudden scrutiny about skill level.
What about the newest TU? He was putting out these kinds of PKGBUILDs
 as of Feb 6, 2013. He was accepted as a TU on Feb 26, 2013, just a
few weeks after thinking that a package should start with pkgrel=0,
that it should provide and replace itself, that it should manually
extract its source for no reason, etc.
My 2 cents:
- If that's the kind of skill level that makes the cut these days,
then graysky seems to far exceed it.
- If that level of skill shouldn't have made the cut, then Arch's TU
voting process needs to be refined so that it's based more on tangible
qualifications than fleeting popularity.
