I have recently taken up maintenance of the orphaned package 
xf86-input-egalax https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35045

This package will replace the package xf86-input-egalax-linux3 
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=55050 to provide a more 
standard package name.

Can someone please check the PKGBUILD in xf86-input-egalax to confirm I 
have written it correctly so when users with package 
xf86-input-egalax-linux3 next update, it will be replaced with 

Upon this confirmation, can we please merge xf86-input-egalax-linux3 
into xf86-input-egalax?

I also notice there are 2 other orphaned packages which provide the same 
functionality. They are both out of date, orphaned and no longer build. 
Can these be deleted please?

touchkit: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=18766
xf86-input-egalax-beta: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=43641

There is a 3rd out of date package which no longer builds, but is not 
orphaned. It has not been updated since 23 June 2010.

xf86-input-egalax-xorg18: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38300

Do I need to contact this maintainer first before requesting the package 
to be deleted?
