Unless I'm misreading something, you're incorrect... The version in 
[community] is at 2.0.3, while the version in AUR is 2.2.0.... Since 
their website lists 2.2.0 as the current stable version I'm inclined to 
leave the version in AUR alone. On the issue of the version in 
[community], it's possible that Geoffroy simply hasn't re-adopted it 
since the recent transition. However, if he doesn't wish to maintain it 
any further, I'll be happy to adopt it.
