FWIW, the zfs package in Antergos is a source distribution using DKMS
to build. Also, (antergos-)gnome-defaults-list, assuming it's solid,
is something the Arch GNOME distribution is in need of. Would be
interesting to get in contact with whoever made that.

More on topic, if Cinnamon desperately needs maintainers, I'd welcome Dustin.
