I'm surprised that this is not respected by the trusted users when
they pick an arbitrary package that is maintained in AUR and upload it
to the community repository without crediting anyone of past

or people who have been keeping the package so far.

If users of the AUR are required to have a minimum of netiquette, more
should be required of TUs.
