The fact that no one adopted openarena{,-data} in two months in not relevant.
Maybe no one noticed it was dropped to the AUR (I'm one of them).
Also the package was fine, so while it builds there's no need of deleting
an unmaintained package on AUR.

Btw, reading the comments [1] I see you opted for using the pre-built binary
since a user noticed that the PKGBUILD was using old source releases.

Well, I just tried with the sources I linked in the previous mail [2]
(latest 0.8.8) and it works fine.

So if you are not going to take care of this, just orphan them both
and upload your openarena-bin package; someone else will adopt em.
