[aur-general] Flashplugin Duplicates

Can I request that some sort of system be put in place for informing
maintainers that their package is being deleted ? I was afk for a week or so
and I come back to a deleted package. While that was the eventual idea, I
had a close to a thousand votes for flashplugin-prerelease, and now that
package is gone with no way of informing the users that the package is
deleted. Most aur helpers I've seen do not inform users about deleted
