Please have a look here:

It says: 
Please add a comment line to the top of your PKGBUILD file that
follows this format. Remember to disguise your email to protect against
spam: # Contributor: Your Name <address at domain dot com>

This is wrong and should read: # Maintainer: Your Name <address at
domain dot com>

This is apparently missleading new and not so new AUR packagers, I just
had an argument about it.

Imho somewhere on this page it should be mentioned that previous
maintainers and other contributors should be kept in the PKGBUILD file
as contributors as this also seems to be not very well known.
