Hi all,

I created a new review request ( yad program - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=683150)

This is my first package. So, if possible, could someone sponsor me?



Best Regards,

Default Looking for a sponsor

Hello,

I have several package reviews pending to be approved, and I also need a sponsor. Is there any willing sponsor who can help me with this? I can swap reviews if there is someone interested in a non informal review.



One of my packages is gogoc, a client for the IPv6 tunnel broker freenet6.net. It would be interesting if it can be available before the world IPv6 day on June 6th

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=738556


Other package is arm, a program for monitoring the Tor routers. I have split this one in three packages, because it included some third party libraries in the same tarball.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=756435



Thank you.
Juan Orti.

Hi,

In October 2011 I sent an email to register my interest in becoming a
TU [1] (thinking that was the next step to get involved) and I
received some helpful responses of how I can be more involved with
Arch, without jumping in as a TU right away.

Over the last 10 months my AUR packages have continued to grow as I
found time to look after more. I currently maintain 58 packages [2]. I
often get in contact with upstream to help with any queries or issues
and feel that I do a good job staying on top of everything. I'm not on
IRC much, but I keep a very close eye on mailing lists, the forum and
what's going on in the AUR. Generally I stay quiet and get on with it
and only make a noise if necessary or to help someone.

I am hoping for some further guidance now, and hopefully for a TU to
take me under their wing to get me closer to becoming a TU, as I would
love to maintain some of my packages in [community] such as
gsimplecal, partclone, obkey, scratch and some games, and also some
packages I do not maintain like dvdbackup and clonezilla. I am a fast
learner so should not be much of a burden.

Many thanks,

jsteel

Hi Jonathan,

Can you provide some links to your upstream contributions (patches, pull
requests, bug reports)?

I think it's ok if you are not too noisy on the ML or the forums but you
should have excellent response times in case you become TU. Your AUR
packages really do have quite a few votes. I noticed you still have ||
return 1s in there. You should delete those as this is now default
behaviour.

I also noticed that while you have adopted quite a few packages, you
only ever submitted 3. That is ok since there are already many packages
in AUR and it doesn't really need further bloating but do you know how
to write a PKGBUILD from scratch? You also haven't even cleaned up some
packages you adopted and it some it still has the old guy as the
maintainer. You should definitely spend some time on your packages there
and at least build/upload them once with your data as opposed to just
clicking "adopt".

If you clean your packages following my above suggestions, I might
sponsor you.

By "help with any queries or issues" I mean looking for help getting
it running on Arch to help create a working PKGBUILD, not contributing
to the projects as such; just using Web/forums/lists/bugs/IRC/email
usually in that order. With forums/lists/bugs I may just monitor
rather than participate unless necessary. Here's a few recent
examples:

abe had an issue which I found a fix for from an existing bug report:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=1463202&group_id=70141&atid=52674 3

I was in contact with openclonk on IRC where I relayed on the package
comments that 5.3 should fix the current issues (when released) and
that the hg version works (which I also maintain):
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=44976

I used to maintain amazonmp3 and was in contact with upstream about
issues via email.

I believe my response times are good. "Excellent" is attainable.

Yes, there are packages I have not edited if they work. I will fix
these today and any future ones I adopt right away. Thank you for
pointing that out.

> do you know how to write a PKGBUILD from scratch?

Yes I am very capable of doing this [1]. I have thoroughly read the
PKGBULD man page and wiki entry and also about creating packages and
standards. I do have one question, and that is the use of curly
brackets. I find people recommending and not recommending their use
but nothing official stated. I am aware of their purpose so is it down
to personal preference?

Thank you.

Yes, personal preference.

Send me a mail after you have made your changes.

Hi all,

I'm interested in becoming a TU.

I used Arch only for one year and a half but 4 for Linux (Ubuntu before). I
submitted my first package by the end of last year, and maintain more and
more during the last a few months. I am eager to maintain packages that
loved and needed by Chinese users as I am one too, such as input
methods(fcitx-*, ibus-*, sunpinyin, libpinyin, etc), internet supplicant in
Chinese universities(mentohust/ruijieclient), chat tools qq
related(linuxqq, webqq, libqq*, etc) and popular proxy tools (sshuttle,
goagent, etc). And I am also a python programmer and maintaining more than
20 python libraries I use for now. I am also active in reporting and
following issues upstream, such as pidgin-lwqq [1].

As I looked after more and more packages on AUR I found many users not so
convenient to install so many packages in AUR, so I joined archlinuxcn's
community repository project [2] to provide popular packages in binary. But
this is not good for user to involve in (such as flag out-of-date, report
bugs, etc).

I am also an IT manager in work, and maintaining several Arch servers.

Some more info about me: 21, male, Wuhan in China, working in a startup,
not very good at C and English.
