[aur-general] TU Resignation

Hey there,

I was thinking about this for a while and finally decided to write the
email. I've been doing this thing for about 12 months now and to be
honest it's gotten really boring lately being a TU, I now think
packaging is the most tedious and annoying process ever and I don't
think I can be bothered doing this anymore. Anyway, I maintain 75
packages in community, most of which being the xfce-svn ones, but
they're all pretty easy to maintain.

I don't know exactly what should happen to the xfce-svn packages,
although it would be great if another TU maintains them it is a lot of
packages and it might be best they go into unsupported for now, if
anyone is interested there is a script I have to automate the whole
process of updating it. The rest of the packages are pretty minor,
maybe even don't need to be in community, and it wouldn't be hard to
just pick a few out.

So there we go, I'll probably stay involved with Arch but definitely
not the packaging side of it. Good luck to the rest of the TUs.
