Glad to hear it wasn't intentional. I find it very strange indeed that the system accepted the request. I don't remember it being flagged OOD but that's on me. Would you mind orphaning xenia-git so I can pick it up again? It would require some rebasing of the patch branches.

Hi, I had the same question, I was trying to get an update to the package without orphaning but by clicking the link it was automatically orphaned by the system in no time, instead of respecting the time as per the page suggestion, is this because it was out of date for over a year?
I wasn't trying to get access as a maintainer other than make it build again with a simple patch of the PKGBUILD, due to the fact that I was trying out the emulator with the latest builds on Arch and saw it on a bad state.
I too wanna be sure that you are the maintainer, it wasn't my intention in being the one for this package.
Hope you'll understand,

I used to maintain xenia-git  and have since its creation. I am also the author of the Linux threading, windowing, debug and other patches that the package uses.
At *19:20:00 UTC* today, an orphan request was submitted and immediately orphaned by user ilbuonmarcio. The user made no attempt to contact me about the issue either by email or in the comments. If they had, I would have responded as I usually do to issues in my packages.
I am active on AUR and have been for over 10 years now. I usually can fix a package issue in a day to a week.
According to the arch wiki:
Orphan requests will be granted after two weeks if the current
maintainer did not react
I was not given the time to react as it is now a few hours later.
I would like to request this orphaning be undone and steps can be taken to avoid this happening again.
