Given the package base in question is now deleted, no one can see the
comments, and I cannot tell when this was mentioned.

So I guess your not using Arch anymore is a fairly decent reason for not
fixing something that you were maybe only made aware of recently...

This announcement would be a good idea, thanks. :)

More generally, if you anticipate returning to Arch and want to still
maintain those packages for the future, you could consider finding
comaintainers. Comaintainers are a fantastic feature and I'm a big fan
of collaboration in the packaging ecosystem. :D

This applies to anyone who is afraid they cannot devote lots of
attention to a package they maintain, for any reason.
