[aur-general] Duplicates in AUR (flashrom-svn)

I want to bring attention to the following packages:

flashrom-dev - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=30391
flashrom-svn - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23390
flashrom-svn-new - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=36865

They all build flashrom from the same svn repo. The second package was the first one uploaded to AUR, but it have been last updated 25 Aug 2009 and doesn't contain libftdi dependence. I think we should remove flashrom-dev and flashrom-svn-new and keep flashrom-svn (it has more votes after all).

I did not contact the maintainer of the second package, but judging by the last date he updated his packages (25 Aug 2009), hopes that he will come and update flashrom-svn aren't big at all. So I suggest orphaning the package as well.

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: should we even keep a possibly unstable version of an utility that may erase your BIOS is another question (:
