[aur-general] Duplicate Package Removal and Disown Request

hashcat-bin [1] is very out-of-date and no longer serves a purpose as 
far as I can tell. Upstream packages the GUI separately, so the default 
package is the binary only anyway. Thus, the naming of the package is 
redundant, it doesn't follow the naming convention upstream and the 
sources it uses no longer exist.

It should be removed in favor of hashcat [2]. However, the maintainer of 
hashcat appears to not be active (last update in AUR: 2012-09-28, last 
update upstream: 2013-03-22). I would be more than happy to take over 
the package's maintainence if it would first be disowned.

All the best,

2. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hashcat/
