This is the first time I've come across such a thing. Usually (as in, every
single time till now) when the maintainer hasn't cared for *any* of his
packages for *10* months, it is assumed that he is no longer interested in
said package(s). Furthermore, as it can be seen from the AUR page, previous
attempts to contact the maintainer have failed.
If, after all that, I'm still expected to send an e-mail *and* wait for 2
weeks for a reply, I could certainly care less about updating an
insignificant package and do something useful for the community.
