Hi everyone,

I would like to step in and volunteer to become a parabola hacker, and
help maintain infrastructure and packages. I think it's time for me to
step in and do some actual work for the project :)

Some info on me to back up my application:

  - you might know me as 'oaken-source' from IRC
  - I donated and maintain mirror.grapentin.org, the (currently only)
    german parabola mirror
  - before migrating to parabola, I have been using arch for longer than
    I can remember; I maintain a couple of desktop parabola installs
    now, as well as 2 dedicated servers running parabola
  - I maintain a private parabola package repo for miscellaneous stuff,
    and have some experience with writing PKGBUILDs, building packages
    from source, and using libretools
  - I have tons of experience in writing C / python / bash code, and to
    a slightly lesser extent in many other programming languages
  - I have a M.Sc. in Software Engineering from the University of
    Potsdam, mainly focused on system software and operating systems
  - I am currently doing my PhD in operating systems and middleware at
    the same university
  - this is my github profile (slightly out of date; I only just
    recently adopted the FSF endorsed terminology, some projects might
    sill say "open source" all over them):
  - I strongly dislike ruby and perl.

I hope you will allow me to make myself useful :)
