Please take into account that pro-audio package maintainers should be
those, who also use the packages for audio work on at least
a nearly professional quality level, IOW they need to have
skills that are at least close to a professional audio engineering

Obviously not many users have very good audio engineering skills + Linux
skills + Arch packaging skills + time to maintain packages, so you
should lower your sights for such a nice domain.
