It would be nice to have something like this, like what we have on the 
forums, rather than having a plaintext email address exposed on the 
account.php page. If the user really wants to email the maintainer 
directly they could just look at a PKGBUILD.

On an unrelated note, does anyone else have problems with the MIME types 
on the AUR server? This is the header I get when downloading a tarball:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/x-tgz
Accept-Ranges: bytes
ETag: "2582334637"
Last-Modified: Sat, 31 Oct 2009 01:58:19 GMT
Content-Length: 425
Date: Fri, 10 Sep 2010 10:52:28 GMT
Server: lighttpd/1.4.28

The MIME type for gzipped tarballs on my system is 
application/x-compressed-tar. It's kinda annoying because Firefox gets 
confused and decides it can't open the tarball. I might try to fix it 
myself at some later stage, but I'm really snowed under at the moment.
