First, our rules assume communication with the maintainer via e-mail [1, the 
third paragraph], because some people disable notifications about new 
comments. And this package isn't marked as out-of-date.
Second, I don't think merging clang into llvm is a good idea. I believe that 
packages in AUR must not contain several different packages (as clang and 
llvm), because it creates difficulties when creating a dependency tree and 
finding a needed package.

I will not merge clang into llvm, but if other TU thinks otherwise he may do 
it. And for disown the package you must contact with its maintainer via e-

Happy New Year =)
