Well, I'm not a TU, but have you tried to contacting the maintainer?

I only see a comment which you've written today in the AUR
comments. Did you send a private e-mail to the maintainer?

If not, please, do so. If yes, please, wait at least two or three weeks.

And you should only ask for orphaning if you really want to adopt and
maintain this package as you told the current maintainer to do so in
the AUR comments.

And, btw., I wouldn't call someone who flags a package as out-of-date
or whatever someone has done with these packages an idiot.
