I didn't, now I do. Thank you!
I've looked some of your packages, I've see your skill with sed & co.
and your PKGBUILDs looks good.
We need a lot of 64bit Trusted User
A question: Do you have only x86-64 as hardware or you have both 32 and 64 bit?
I have 2 x86-64 (core 2 duo @ 2ghz, athlon64 x2 @ ~2ghz) + 3 i686
(core duo @ 2ghz, core solo @ 1 ghz, celeron m @ 900mhz), and a zonbu
i only use for multimedia playback (via c7 @ 1.2ghz).
Plus 32 bits chroot on one of my x86_64, but I remember it may cause
problems with gcc.

Let's discussion period start!
Had a quick look at some of your packages and saw nothing but cosmetic
changes needed (you can delete an empty depends array). Saw same good
use of custom license. I think you will make a good TU.
BTW, you have too many computers and I will accept charity!

Deleted 2 empty depends arrays locally.
Thanks for the remarks.

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. I used the
desktop-file-validate for fixing all my .desktop files. It's pity,
that I didn't know about it earlier, now I will remember it for ever
And yes, tome was pretty ugly. I fixed the PKGBUILD. Did learn a
lot today again.
Any other comments are welcome.

My name is Angel Velásquez and I live in Venezuela. I have 24 years old and I
just finished my studies in the university (Computer Technician), so now I have
enough time to work in my favorite distro. My native language is Spanish and I also
speak Italian and English (at a regular level, I can be easily understood);
also, I understand Portuguese and some French (at a beginners level). I work as
PHP/Python Developer (under Linux) and of course, now I'm working on Arch ;-).
I have been using Linux since 1998: I started with Red Hat 5.2, but I got
disappointed about many of the rpm's limitants, so I moved back again to Win**
(yeah, this is sad), until 2000 when I met Slackware and I liked it because
with this distro you are not 'rpm dependent', so*you maintain your distro
and your libraries. Working this way was good until I needed to get new things,
so I moved to Debian unstable for a long time; back in 2005 I discovered Arch
Linux because a friend of mine proposed me 'hey, what about to test another and
different distro?' and I liked it, but due to job reasons at that moment I didn't
have the time to install Arch completely (as a main distro), but finally I became
an 'archer' in 2006 when I had enough time to learn and use it proficiently. I was
expecting to join an Arch Linux community here in Venezuela but at that moment,
nothing happened and no groups were created, however we had one of the biggest
events on the country (FLiSoL) so I had to search some local archers (Ricardo
Hernández, Miguel Useche, Flavio Percoco, Victor Roman, etc) and we created the
local community :-), and I can say that I'm proud of our little (for now) team.
Now we have a community and we are learning new things everyday and we are
getting new users into the community, whom have agreed to collaborate with us.
So, I would like to be a TU, I have been developing and fixing some AUR / ABS
packages for my own use (and other friends who needed them), I have also worked
documenting and helping Arch Articles in the Spanish Community, and I have been
in contact with some people from the Brazilian and Italian community.
Maybe I do not have many packages in AUR (just 16 and not all are from scratch
many of them have been adopted) but I am very connected with the Arch Linux
community, specially working on the part that I'm responsible of, which is the
Arch Linux Venezuelan Community.
Right now, I think I have time to do some important things with some packages (especially
those based on haskell, because I've been studying it) and helping developing
some new features to AUR and the Arch Linux Community.

I saw at one of your PKGBUILDs you only have i686. Is that true, and
are if so are you willing to build for x86_64 on a build machine (well
at least if it will be fixed or another solution is found)?
Do you have any fields you want to focus your work on, or will you
just take popular packages if you become a TU?
A couple of remarks after a quick look on your PKGBUILDs:
*gpl licenses should read GPL not gpl (yes I know very minor)
*don't create files from within a PKGBUILD but rather add it as an
extra file (example: archive)
*your pkgdesc in haskell-mersenne-random is a bit long (it reads 3
lines on my laptop screen)
*why do you introduce a custom variable in haskel-mersenne-random, it
makes it harder to read and I see no clear advantage of using it?
(same for haskel-zlib)
* license is an array (package: istanbul, lucview)
*you can use the !libtool option to remove .la files (package:splashy)
*you can remove empty fields to make to make it better readable
*I think you made a typo in the source array of mantis?
Don't worry too much about the list, those are mostly minor things.
Good luck in becoming a TU.

I know Angel, he is more present in #archlinux-it channel on freenode.
If Hugo Doria thinks Angel is ready for become a TU, I think so.
I saw the PKGBUILDs, only a few note:
- don't use sourceforge mirror (e.g. archive)
- depends what are in base groups can be omitted (e.g. splashy, yafc)
- and no more...Ronald said all

Hi Ronald and Bash,
Good list. Many of the items I had already notice. But do not worry,
I'll help him solve these problems.
