Thank you. These are valid and good reasons. Nevertheless it would have 
been a better way to do a orphaning request on this list than to upload 
a duplicate.

Anyway, Jelle already wrote a comment on AUR comment page for utserver. 
So the problem will be solved in short.

BTW, thank you for notifying the duplicate.

Regards Stefan

Sorry for uploading a dublicate package, I come from Gentoo and was not used to 
AUR yet, like I said, utserver was not maintained anymore, and I did not 
oficially asked for this package, but as told to Cédric, I did not want to take 
over chris-kan's package, but just maintained it while he did not answer...... 
Btw, my PKGBUILD is based on his, and I will be very happy to get his help on 
I promise that I will my best to maintain utorrent-server (which is by the way 
in Alpha and has a big bug known upstream to crash.... We are working on this at 
this moment) 
And as a "new" PKGBUILD maintainer, I am open to any suggestions or help by 
anyone, and of course I would love, chris-kan's advice on my PKGBUILD as mine is 
based on his!!
Again, sorry to not have followed all the rules.....
