[aur-general] Newbie question about updating package

Well, I spoke too early...

System says «No está autorizado a sobreescribir el paquete
fontforge-cvs.» (You're not allowed [granted] to overwrite
fontforge-cvs pkg.)

Mantainer lost his password and can't log in (I attach his answer to
this topic). So, is there any way to update the package?

Thanks in advance,
Franz Rogar

I got a notification about it being flagged out of date a while ago
but was unable to do anything as I'd lost my password (and the
archlinux AUR appears to have no means for recovering a lost
password!) . My password remains lost. If it's possible for you to
adopt the package without me needing to login, you are welcome to do

Thanks Franz.

Thanks in anyway,
