Come on Caleb, you are making a fuss out of nothing! I was not 
complaining (saw the smiley at the end?!), just sending a friendly note 
of advice as a dev and former TU. I was not even qualifying your uploads 
as "mistakes", just suggesting that these uploads of duplicate packages 
could be easily avoided with a tiny effort of scripting. I am actually 
glad for your Perl contributions to AUR, and your bug reports on 
Flyspray, and hope your involvement will continue.
