Yes Daenyth this was from the TU irc channel,.. and **then** we went on to
talk about field additions to (try to) prevent;

A - Someone removing my name to enter theirs as contributor.. ala an
additional commented field caled "Original Contributor". I even asked if you
wanted to do this. You declined and said I should do that. I had nto done
that because I had not yet resigned AND the following issue;

B - I was also concerned and voiced it on the TU irc at about the same time
about how this would all work if I set up a separate binary repo. Since the
PKGBUILDs in AUR can be "upgraded" into a binary by a TU at a later date and
I would have no access to this PKGBUILD at that point, having resigned.
Because of that there could easily be syncing problems from different
versions of binaries sitting in two different binary repos, or worse compile
time issues, or differing dep. issues.. and the list may even be twice that
large for impacting issues.
