The last package of mine that a request was made against (pacemaker-stable) was merged (int pacemaker) rather quickly through an aur request,
so I'm pretty sensitive about such things. Whenever I do requests myself, I give the maintainers ususally a month before I send it
and also send them mail to their registered email address in case they don't see the mail from the AUR.

The AUR only sends one mail per request and, as you wrote yourself, people have a busy life. Relatively unimportant tasks like updating PKGBUILDs are forgotten rather quickly.

Thank you for rejecting the request.

Kind regards
