What the hell?
Merge does not do what you think it does. This is not github. Read the AUR wiki page.
"Merge requests are for when one package is replacing another one. Users still have to resubmit a package under a new name and may request merging of the old version's comments and votes. This has nothing to do with 'git merge' and is not similar to github's merge requests."
"Users still have to resubmit a package under a new name"
i never made the claim this was github, and i find it silly that you're inferring i ever had that assumption.
