Can i upload a pkbuild to the AUR (perhaps with the same name) ? There a few other orphans that would like to adopt, if it's possible:

These are great news!

Actually the question regarding 
the names is about creating an aur package with the same name of the orphaned ones since the aur is where i can maintain those packages.
