Is it? The previous maintainer has never voted, and their last action on
the AUR, as far as I can tell, was June of last year. The only remaining
package they have is out of date as of a month ago, in addition to clasp
and gringo. I don't think there's any unwarranted "hijacking" happening

Tangentially related, I think it would make sense to forward the
unanswered email (with bounceback, if appropraite) from the current
maintainer with any disown request. I think this is a simple measure to
try and keep people honest in their requests. Maybe I'm just overly wary
of people...
