I believe that covers most of it. You should probably be prepared for
anthraxx to go over your AUR packages with a fine-toothed comb looking
for every conceivable mistake you could make though. :D

Really, the main thrust of it is finding a TU to sponsor you, and making
a good case as to what you want to accomplish as a TU and what your
previous track record is in the Arch/FOSS community as a way to gauge
what kind of maintainer you would be.

In my experience lurking here, most people who can make a coherent
argument for all those things tend to be accepted. Good luck! :)
