[aur-requests] Full deletion request for libinput-gestures

I am an Arch user and also maintain a utility called libinput-gestures at
https://github.com/bulletmark/libinput-gestures which is used by quite a
few people. A number of people there asked me to create an AUR package
which I have now done. However, just before I got to submit the package,
somebody else hacked up something which they submitted as libinput-gestures
so they took the package name. I asked him to disown and remove the package
which he agreed and did so within an hour or so as discussed in
https://github.com/bulletmark/libinput-gestures/issues/6. However even
though the package is gone from the AUR web page I find the git repo still
exists on aur.archlinux.org which means he will be forever credited as the
originator of the package. I know it seems picky but I would prefer to be
credited as the originator, not just the maintainer.

So can I ask that the repo be fully deleted? I have my version of a
PKGBUILD ready to submit but it bares no relationship to whatever was there
before so the git history is irrelevant.
