[aur-general] AUR "Jamie" account

A user by the name of "Jamie" on the forum wants an AUR account with
the same name: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=81872

The problem is that the account is already taken but whoever owns it
has never used it to upload a package or vote. If it were up to me
alone, I would try to contact the owner of the account and either
request that (s)he give it up if I get a response or simply switch it
over otherwise.

My reasoning is that it makes more sense to have the same name on the
forum and the AUR (and everything else with a separate account) because
it makes it easy to know who's who, which has implications for the AUR.

What do the other TUs (and interested devs) think? I think this is a
rare enough event to not have to worry about a flood of requests to
grab matching names on the AUR.

Btw, in case you're wondering, Jamie tried to post a message to the
list following my suggestion on the forum but it apparently didn't get
through so he asked me to do it, hence this message.
