Just pull a new drawterm-hg package into the AUR 
About the drawterm package
- Upstream releases source tarballs versioned by date (latest version is 20130702), that may be used for stable releases.
- Orphaning is the right procedure, btw I just pinged 9souldier.org and the server seems to be down, so the user mail provided in his profile  is probably out of order.
- You can get an alternative mail address (and the name) of the current maintainer in the first line of this PKGBUILD  in order to contact him, but you can rely on IRC too since his nickname is also listed here .
So, I suggest you trying to get in touch with the current maintainer using the alternative mail and IRC and wait for another week: if you will not get any response, I'll orphan drawterm so you can update it.
