'Aucun' means it is an orphaned package in french.

The package was orphaned at that time (at least it's not on my list[1]).

The aur-mirror[2] reveals it was moved from the repositories to the AUR
before 2011 and maintained by Judd Vinet and Dale Blount back in 2006.
Both left Arch[3] some time ago.
The comment by 'mortzu' on the package page corresponds to that
commit[4], where the maintainer information were stripped.
After that, somebody modernized the package[5], however, who that did is
I hope this helps as well. Now a little question: Why do you want to
know who maintained it? There are no patches or anything.

best regards,
