Hi Robin,

I might be wrong, but dont we require to have at least 10 votes on AUR
to move a package to [community]? In this case none of your packges has
more than 6 votes at the time of writing this. There is also a rule
about >=1% popularity on pkgstats, but it seems every package has at
least 1%? Or does this TU application count as a proposol on which 3 TUs
must aggree?

Are those rules even up to date? This is somehow offtopic, the TU
application just made me wonder about it. To me it looks like those
rules are outdated and in the end everyone can move whatever they want
to [community].
