I wasn't complaining about outdated package or maintainer activity. In fact
AUR alternative provided pretty smooth transition period for many users.

It's even easier to forgot that Arch users community is unpaid and
passionate as well and throw their work out of the window just because
you can. Did AUR maintainer benefited from uploading his package there?
Not at all. They could use it locally just fine and don't care if anyone else
need it to.
I spend an absurd amount of time for submitting bugs and enchantments
to Arch packages, helping others, resolving Arch related issues with
upstream and was the last person who benefited from it. Many Arch users
voluntarily do the same things. And they don't have to have some
meaningless title to feel special about it even when their work is treated
as annoying disturbance because lack of it.
