Hi guys,

TUs are *Trusted Users* by definition, so they are trusted by... whom? and for... what?)) - I'd bet when they are wipe out spam comments and simply spam or nasty things like so, they don't have to get so called "four-eyes" approvals for that. But what's regarding their own requests, they should be well on their own, because thay are TUs. - We (ordinary Arch Linux users) trust them to do what they consider like a common sense.
Arch developers are few, but TUs are many. Besides that (almost) every TU has gone through a two-step procedure admitting as a TU, which is clearly visible in this ML, regularly. - Once again: we trust them and their vision regarding common sense.
(*Sidespin* : I notice this for a long period of time that stepped-down TUs still use their own emails with archlinux.org domain, at least in the current ML. And I wonder, why those email addresses not withdrawal upon their membership as TUs has finished? - Giancarlo, Alad, maybe someone else? - This is a funny curiosity, no more.)))))
