Fortunately this user seems to maintain 500+ packages less, assumed the
600+ wasn't a typo:


Assumed a maintainer should maintain more than 500 packages, a
moderator/admin should automatically get informed, who then randomly
checks a few packages, e.g. if the source code comes from an upstream
server or from a suspect mirror. This should be done not to ensure that
the PKGBUILDs are 100% secure, but just to ensure that it really is a
single maintainer and not a suspect organisation providing packages.
