To whom it may concern,

I am requesting disownment of the mcabber-hg[1] AUR package so I may claim maintainership. I contacted the current maintainer two weeks ago[2] about merging in my PKGBUILD to improve functionality, but also to bring it up to the 
current PKGBUILD standards. I have not received a reply from the maintainer. One interesting thing to note is that the last updated date will change on a regular basis (usually around 23:00), but the PKGBUILD itself is unchanged. 
The PKGBUILD is actually useless by itself as it requires the user to manually fetch the sources before running makepkg -s.

Hi nixtrian,

I took a bit of time to rework your PKGBUILD for mcabber-hg and was wondering if you could take a look at it. It adds in support for libotr4, version numbering from commits, adds in the source paramter for cloning, and I've
split the build function into build and package functions. It worked fine on my machine and a friend's so it should be ready to roll.


Let me know what you think...
