You can not post to arch-dev-public so your message was not ignored, we 
just never saw it.

So the package is out-of-date and the new version does not build?  Could 
be a reason why it is not updated...

Anyway, the way this tends to be dealt with, is someone posts a working 
PKGBUILD here and another dev updates it.  If this happens regularly for 
a package, either another dev with take over maintenance or it will be 
dropped to [community].
