Lack of developer manpower is an issue. There are about 10
outstanding patches on the aur-dev list that haven't seen any response
by a developer. The earliest one was sent on May 4th, the latest on
May 11th. There are even more patches that I submitted that had 
positive responses but haven't been pushed to the main testing repo.
Developers are the only ones that can push them into the source and
are the only ones that can access the actual server and database.

We need more developers.
