I'd like to also point out that there are 2 other related packages which also seem unmaintained:




Same program.

This package builds with either ncurses, gtk, qt4 or kde.

One single (possibly 'split')  package might make more sense.....

And if any of the maintainers of the above mp-5 packages would rather continue as maintainers, no problem for me.  Just trying to get this package actively maintained and stick to AUR standards.

Another solution might be for me to do a git version and just maintain that--but it would still leave 3 other related (and unmaintained) packages in AUR.
