findwild was mine, I did a fresh upload, that fixed it.
I deleted micq (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=7928) because
last update was 2006 and the maintainer did not respond to the comments
of several users (program was renamed to climm).

For  the other packages I left a comment. The
AUR comment page looks strange. Where I expect the comment button, there
is the word "poop".
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=20933 is okay, there are only
small files uploaded.
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=14252 is okay, too.
Thank you for notification.
Regards Stefan
