Hi freswa,

I would like to ask you the following questions:

1. How do you monitor new software releases? Do you use a specific tool
for this like urlwatch?

2. How do you want to participate in the Arch Linux community? I see
that you are very active in the IRC and on the bugtracker. Are there
other areas, where you are active?

3. Do you use any tools for enforcing a specific PKGBUILD format? For
example shfmt?

4. Are you testing your packages? If so, how? Do you spawn a VM via
vagrant? Or do you use systemd-nspawn or docker images? Or do you just
test it locally on your machine?
