Quoting Alad Wenter via aur-general (2017-09-10 15:16:57)
> Hello everyone,
> My name is Alad Wenter, and I would like to apply for a position as Trusted User. I’m a student in Germany, majoring in Mathematics with a focus on Algebraic Topology. Many thanks to Johannes Löthberg who is sponsoring my TU application.
> I’ve been using Linux since late 2013, as the EOL of Windows XP was approaching. My first steps were taken via Linux Mint, gradually moving to Debian in both Stable and Unstable variants.
> I have started using Arch in middle 2014, after being convinced that “I should just install Arch” on a different forum. Since then I have become an ArchWiki Bureaucrat (since May 2016) and IRC Operator (since February 2017) for the #archlinux channel on freenode.
> Amongst others, I helped complete the long-standing merge of the Beginners’ Guide , vastly extended the comparison of third-party AUR scripts on the “AUR Helper” article,  and improved coordination amongst users through a new #archlinux-wiki freenode channel.  Other activities include the Arch forums , Bug tracker , and submitting requests on the AUR.

> For software development, I am familiar with the Bash and C++ languages, and have published a few projects related to Arch, such as aurutils.  Where possible, I try to coordinate with upstream authors if I encounter any issues with their projects (for example, )

> - eid-mw
> - innoextract
> - mit-scheme

> - polkit-explorer
> - python-i3

> I have opened a repository with modifications from the original AUR packages to better suit them as candidates for [community].

> I would further adopt the following orphans in community:
> - cabextract
> - gpick
> - sigil
> - sshfs

> - usbview
I confirm my sponsorship and such. Let the discussion period begin!
