[aur-general] Deleting packages in AUR

Hi all,

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.
