Only afterwards I found out from the developer of Dunst (Knopwob) that the light version isn't maintained anymore and that soon, he is going to delete the relevant branch from his GitHub. He recommended me and other users to use the normal version instead.

If this is not the correct way anymore, then please regard this email as not send. I do hope though that  I am doing this in the correct way and that you will remove my package from the AUR.

Sorry for late reply, but in the current systemd-related mess it's
much more difficult to find emails.

You did it right, but I have two small suggestions for future
requests. Include link to the package. Also it's better to use the
same email as the email on AUR if you want to remove your package, it
helps as an additional verification.

Anyway, I removed the dunst-light-git package.
