I'm disowning sage-mathematics, sage-mathematics-spkgs(optdepends for
sage-mathematics), fityk, and xylib(dependency for fityk).
I will move them to the aur in a week if no TU adopts them in community.
If you plan on adopting sage-mathematics, you should know that it is
currently unbuildable on archlinux, and some other newer distros due
to how it is built.
It is currently out of date, and you wont be able to update it without
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/10572 (13 month old bug
without recent comments)
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/11391 (9 month old bug I
filed without a sign of activity)
If you plan on adopting fityk, note that it needs a development
version of wxwidgets which I statically build in the same PKGBUILD.
After checking on an old packaged I disowned a while ago, it appears that
pixelmap  no longer compiles. I think it broke when libpng was updated,
and it doesn't look like upstream has kept pace with either libpng or
minecraft development. Please delete it. Thanks in advance.
I'll be (partly) inactive for a couple of weeks. Maybe I'll have some
time to take care of some stuff yet that's not granted. I won't
participate in any upcoming votes.
As I won't check my mails everyday, answers to emails may also take a

The user tdy  seems no longer active. He has 360 packages with 50
outdated. Last activity I've been able to spot is mid-2011.
Could someone orphan all his packages for other people to adopt them.
I have not contacted him but he is in cc of this email.
I guess this is a good summary of all the talk in virtualbox-sun's
The reality here is that virtualbox-bin has evolved into something
_at least_ as good as virtualbox-sun. While it's true that -sun is the
original one it's also the one with the incorrect naming, a bit slower
updates (by a day or so) and less votes (229 vs -bin's 3430). Because we
can't justify keeping duplicated work around just to make everybody
happy, one of them has to go.
Even if -sun was to stay here the "better" stuff in -bin would have to
be implemented there first before the removal and the renaming. When put
together with the comment/vote merge it's starting to sound a bit
pointless (taken how we can just remove that one).
I know what I'd do but it's not my decision: it's yours.
 virtualbox-sun = https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=31996
 virtualbox-bin = https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51727
