[aur-dev] Ghost repo?

A user wanted to create an AUR package for libpng12 but found that there was
already a repo when he tried to push it, even though the package does not
appear on the site [1]. The log of the existing git repo contains the author's
name and email address but there is no account with either. The last update was
May 8, 2016. Is this a bug, perhaps due to a deleted account?

I was going to try pushing an update to see if the package re-appears on the
site but it's probably better if one of the devs takes a peak to see what's
going on.

The package is libpng12.
