People can still search by your name. If they search by 'Maintainer'
the package won't be listed there because you aren't in fact the
maintainer, you are the co-maintainer. They will need to search by
'Maintainer, Co-maintainer'[1].

We can orphan the package for you to adopt it but this isn't the
correct way to contact us. The correct procedure would be for you to
open an Orphan Request on the AUR interface and wait until it gets
resolved. If it gets accepted you are then free to adopt the package.
