Sorry, but this is incorrect.  The packager is not necessarily the
maintainer.  The packager is just the person who performed the most
recent rebuild of the package.  In the case of unrealircd, the packager
is not the maintainer.
If you want to know who maintains a package, use the package search form
on www.archlinux.org.

There's probably no reason to contact the
maintainer directly, anyway.  Bug reports should go to the bug-tracker,
and out-of-date notifications should be made by clicking the "flag
package" link on the package's page.
