[aur-general] Orphan Request: eclipse-dltk-* packages maintained by emphire

I am sorry to bump this thread but it seems like my request escaped 
everyone's eyes last time. I brought this up in the IRC channel 
yesterday and some people suggested me just to bump it. So..

To recap, all eclipse-dltk-* packages from emphire are out-of-date:

NOTE 1: DLTK Stable 3.0.1 was released on August 26, 2011:

NOTE 2: emphire doesn't seem to respond to user requests since 30th June:

NOTE 3: I do maintain some eclipse/related packages, and I am interested 
to 1) adopt, 2) update and 3) keep maintaining/updating in sync with 
upstream releases.


@ emphire: Please disown these eclipse/dltk packages for now. If I adopt 
your packages, I promise, I will give these back to you as soon as you 
get back to AUR and ask me.
