Dashh? If you did and got no reply for two weeks, you can request that 
that package be orphaned as well. I would suggest that you pick which 
ever of the three names makes most sense to you and request that the 
others be merged into it. You can do this by sending an email to the 
aur-general mailing list. I think this would cut down on confusion for 
new users.

Thanks Doug.
e17-module-trash-svn 480-1 is the one that contains my patches and the I 
intend to maintain.
I think that I do recall attempting to contact the maintainer of the 
non-orphaned package. I did not receive any contact from him.
I don't recall how it came to be that I didn't adopt the orphan - my 
usual practice is to do so.

If "merge" means any comments, etc. get tacked on to the one that I'll 
maintain and my PKGBILD stays in tact, then yes, please merge
e17-module-trash and e17-trash-svn with

Thank you
