Hi Gary, a shame to hear that you can no longer maintain your packages
and even more so about your job. Hopefully, perhaps one day you might
return to the AUR as a package maintainer. Thank you for providing and
maintaining the Monkey packages, they've been very useful. I've adopted
these two and will continue to keep them up-to-date as long as I can. If
you do find time to maintain packages in the future and would like them
back, just give me a shout! :-)

Once again, thank you for the time that you invested and I wish you all
the best.

Kind regards,
