At the moment anyone can delete a package they maintain from the AUR.
This seems to be being exploited by an evil minority to remove packages
that have been orphaned. e.g.
I thought that it may be better if we restricted the deleting to only
devs/TUs so this con no longer happen. (see bug
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/10527). The question is, how often do
packages get deleted from the AUR and thus how much work would this
generate? I guess it would be in similar volume to what we already get
from orphan requests but this is just a guess.
Anyway, pressh suggested I post this here so all TUs would see it.
