I am the current maintainer of the gnucash package in AUR.  I was
wondering, if it is being pulled into extra, would you become the new
maintainer?  Also, i would like to warn you about a couple of things:

1. gnucash depends on slib, which is in community currently
2. we have been having issues compiling gnucash with the newer
versions of slib.  I currently can still only build it with slib-3a1.
Mainly, it's been issues with relocating files in the slib package and
relocating/renaming functions.
3. gnucash depends on aqbanking which is also in community (and which
we are also currently having runtime problems with)
4. I was waiting for the next release for this, but the scrollkeeper
dep has been replaced by rarian
5. gnucash 2.2.3 was released today with some bug fixes

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
