I would like to be of service.

Quite busy all the time, but I'll give my best.

I have unexpected free time and can give it maybe about 2 hours a day.  I have no idea where to really start.

I'm willing to help and to learn.
I've got a bit of experience with building packages for Puppy Linux.
However, I would need a crash course on how to do things properly with PKGBUILD.

PKGBUILDs are just bash scripts, parsed by makepkg. You can read the Arch wiki entries for more information on variables and functions.

A basic how-to pertaining to Artix package operations can be found in our Github documentation page.

I suggest you create a couple of packages on the AUR so as to familiarize yourself with how package maintainance works; we'll be around for the rest. Cheers!

Hey... I maintain some AUR packages on Arch.
I admire the Arch build system!
And have much exp. with it as well as Gentoo's portage, will be more than willing to help!
Where can I get information about what exactly needed?
I could also write some article on Wiki about package building scenarios.
(saw the slashdot story)

I would hate for Artix to die simply due to  a lack of package maintainers, so I'm willing to help as I can.
... because systemd sucks
