The question is not so stupid as it sounds in the first moment
because "pacman -Si" shows only the packager but we all speaks even from the
maintainer. And i must say that this point is for me not clear too and i will
give you a example with firefox-i18n:

pacman -Si firefox-i18n:
Packager : Jan de Groot <jgc at archlinux.org>

First lines in the PKGBUILD (i delete only the email addresses):
# Maintainer: Thomas Baechler
# Contributor: Jaroslaw Swierczynski
# Contributor: Michal Hybner

And now? Result for me: Having the abs tree on my disk (or looking at
repos.archlinux.org) is the best solution to find out who maintains a

Note: A "pacman -Si firefox" shows this "Packager : Unknown Packager".

See you, Attila
