I asked about this in #archlinux-tu and the one reply so far said it
would be best to start things off with a request to aur-general which
doesn't name names. The first TU to see it could then follow up off-list
and learn the details. If that's uncomfortable for some, maybe just pick
an email from the TU list [1] to contact. Of the "active" TUs, some are
more active than others and a look through the mailing list archives can
help narrow it down.
