[aur-general] orphan request: mycraft

There's a package in the AUR called mycraft [1] that currently doesn't 
follow AUR guidelines, specifically the guideline about not putting 
stuff in the source package that can be downloaded from an outside 
source. Among the files in the source package is a png file that can be 
simply extracted from a jar file that is among the sources.

Originally the jar was in the source package. After I notified the 
maintainer (makz) about 5 weeks ago about the jar and png, and included 
instructions based on my feedthebeast [2] package on how to extract the 
png, makz uploaded a new version with only the jar located externally; 
however, the png is still needlessly in the source package. makz last 
uploaded the PKGBUILD on Feb 13, and I emailed them a second time a 
couple days later with no response.

As a result, I am requesting orphaning of mycraft [1].
