[aur-general] Pruning Old / Abandoned Packages

I've been wading through orphaned AUR packages and submitting removal
requests for projects that are abandoned upstream. Are there generally
any rules of thumb I should be following?

Currently I've been considering the following before submitting a
removal request:

1. Is the upstream project abandoned?
2. When was the package flagged out of date? (If applicable)
3. When the package was last updated?
4. When the last comment was made on a package?

Suggestions are welcome!
