I never received a mail from you and the last and only out-of-date
message I received before this was "PKGBUILD needs updated". Not really
helpful in my opinion. Also, simply overwriting my PKGBUILD with the one
from the repository (like you suggested) does not work. Anyway, since
you really want to maintain it, I orphaned it now. So, after the ban is
lifted, you may do as you please.

While I do not think this is true, because I still have updated others
in the meanwhile, maybe is a good time to send some orphan requests, so
I can get rid of them.
Btw. I have made changes to, like, 400 PKGBUILDs in the AUR over the
last 8 years, I test my packages in clean chroots and (lib32-)sdl2-hg
have always built there fine. I may not be the best maintainer, but
there are certainly worse.

I still believe selecting the wrong branch was either a user or server
configuration issue, since my test showed it cloned the correct branch
here. Anyway, yes, I did not react on that. I see you have fixed that
now as well (applying the suggested change by Teteros).

No hard feelings here as well. Just a friendly advice: There may be
times where you cannot (or do not want to) correspond to every request
made on every platform where you are active. For me it was this time
that we were in the middle of release preparations of a project I am
maintaining on GitHub, so there was little time to spend on AUR.
It may happen to you in the future and maybe someone wants to take over
one of your packages then. ;)
