annisar [1] filed an orphan request for pipewire-git [2]:

(This is 2nd request for the topic, previous was rejected because it
was wrongfully marked as deletion request instead of the orphan one)

The package maintainer used very popular name that's in typical AUR
convention to introduce changes that are misleading and mainly usable
by himself only, which is not reflected by the name. I request for
deletion of it or changing the ownership (to me, for an example) so
someone can maintain the package more responsibly. There's a lot of
people who install -git packages without checking the PKGBUILD,
expecting that these will be built from master-bound official
PKGBUILD. Considering this, maintainer's behavior can be described as
irresponsible from community standpoint.
