Now I spend a lot of time on learning C++. Currently I'm maintainer of 5 packages in AUR and I can take care of more of them. The current ones are 'xnots-git', 'otter-browser-weekly', 'otter-browser-git' and two Xfce components (git checkout). I'm working on Polish translations of some open source projects (like Xfce, WINE, Otter Browser...). Of source I know how to use Git.

As described in our bylaws, your application has to be sponsored by
another Trusted User. As apparently nobody on our IRC channel knows you,
it makes me think that you didn't really read it[1].

5 packages that are development releases or git checkouts isn't
impressive. You said that you would like to move stable otter-browser to
repositories, but what besides it? "Some packages" is too vague to infer

Don't give up though, keep packaging and one day someone will be happy
to sponsor you.
