Sorry, but none of that is important.

1. No, it's not. Just because it's the desktop version of the program doesn't
make that the name of the app.

2. The only thing important about the dates you give is that they show that
slack-chat has existed longer so slack-desktop is a duplicate, which is not
allowed in the AUR. If it's no longer maintained, you request that it be
orphaned, you don't create duplicates.

3. The slack-desktop package virtualy the same, except the current maintainer
removed the contributor info. Bad form. If there's a problem, notify the
maintainer to fix it.

4. Dont' top post.
