Yes for further reference, please don't ask for that here in the future. If
there is no maintainer (and also none listed in the PKGBUILD), you can send
an updated PKGBUILD to arch-general, there are more devs reading that
mailing list, one of them may have time to update it for you.
Well, I bumped the version of tor for you to 0.2.0.35 so let me know if
something does not work as expected as I've no idea how to test it.
