I guess I don't see what benefit the submitter field would have in
such an instance.
If someone moved it from the official repos to the aur, would they not
be the submitter and also the maintainer?

There was a discussion in another thread about adding submitter to the
api return results, and I mentioned that I felt that submitter field
wasn't very relevant or useful. This patch stemmed from that
