Per Eli's email, I have gone ahead and created a new AUR account under the alias "cesura" (my standard nick for the past few years). For clarity's sake, I've also made my bugtracker account under the same name. Based on the BBS policies, I don't believe a name change is possible, and plan to keep "itsbrad212" on the forums for the time being (as embarrassing as it may be). This will be my standard PGP signature moving forward, and I have my fingerprint set on the new AUR account. I'll use this email as an extremely brief "application" of sorts, to potentially give a bit more background and outline my immediate goals. As some of you may already know, I was elected as a Trusted User back in 2010, and had a nice run of around 1000 svn commits (maybe exactly?). I made the decision to step down as I did not feel like I had enough free time to uphold my responsibilities. As a TU in 2018, there would be a few projects that I'd like to tackle first, notably the MATE desktop and a few other orphaned packages that have drifted away from upstream versions. Lastly, thank you to Eli Schwartz for the sponsorship, and if there are any outstanding questions for me, don't hesitate to ask. Brad Fanella
