microblog-purple and linuxdcpp-plus-odc are my own contributions and the 
   *-ubuntu package which  i adopt them some time ago when somebody was 
deleteing orphan packages. Those are my primary contributions and i 
update them regulary.

This is confusion for me, like is confusion from you also. I didn't know 
that Maintainer field is only for devs and TU or the Maintainer is the 
person who actually own it. I will wait a bit more to clarify this thing 
before doing any modification. That Maintainer field is there because i 
was using the build from extra as a starting point.

I was looking in pacman source tree and i've try to improve some 
behavior in pacman. For example when a group is in testing and 
extra/core also pacman asks you two times. This is my first contribution 
that i want to make into pacman.

Also to answer in this mail for all the previous mails:

Stefan and Abhishek i'll fix those issue right now. About namcap i 
forgot totally about that.
