I did, it was an unfortunate choice of words.

Maybe this isn't needed and asking for unintended wrong usage.

Mediators reachable by email would be good.

Regarding what to add to the Wiki and my original thread, I wonder if my claim is correct, even if a package build from AUR suffers from a soname issue, then it's _not_ out of date, since users need to care on their own to rebuild an AUR package, assumed a lib from official repos gets update and the AUR package is build against this lib.

I didn't read the current AUR guides and will do it later. Perhaps the guides need a summary, they might be too long.

I guess we shouldn't continue the discussion about this maintainer.
