I'm not TU anymore, but IIRC discussion is open to anyone.

Sergej is doing a huge work maintaining >600 packages in [community], and
honestly I don't know how he can handle them. Sometimes I think he is a bot 
running on a russian server (the lack of communication in the ml confirms this

The main complaints I have with his packages are the lack of the Maintainer tag,
really annoying because I have to look in the web interface of the AUR to know
who's maintaining a package (or look in CVS logs) and most of them doesn't have
a valid license field.

Moreover he seems to not have notification for comments for his packages in the
AUR, so writing a comment about a package is like writing it in /dev/null.

The last thing: seriously, who the hell needs stuff like
cross-arm-wince-cegcc-libstdcppdll ? More than 500 packages owned by sergej have
less than 10 votes, so virtually useless.

I have to admit almost all his packages are not out of date (still, I can't
understand how this is possible), kudos for that, but IMHO the quality is
more important than the quantity.
