I partially agree, but in this case he's made the svn public so that users can
contribute to development. Sure, anyone can use it, but it isn't there for
that. The inclusion of the package on the AUR may be taken as an implication
that the package is for general use, so I understand why the developer would
request its removal. Note that he didn't show up and start demanding that it be
removed (at least not from what I've seen). He simply expressed his concerns
and gave his reasons, and we in turn addressed them.
