As many of you may have noticed, my time for Arch lately hasn't been so 
much. We all go through cycles, this one is going on somewhat longer 
than I'd hoped.

Henceforth, embracing the open source way, I'm encourage any developer 
who wants to update my packages at any time to do so. I will not be even 
slightly offended. It's more important that we all be able to scratch 
our own itches when the need arises, and if we don't like the direction 
something has gone, we can always talk about it and change it down the 
line. You're all developers because we trust your judgement.. feel free 
to go with that.

Short version: If you want, update my packages whenever you want, 
involving me in whatever way you want, or not at all, in the process. If 
you prefer to take over ongoing maintenance of a package, shoot me an email.
