I posted this in the AUR comments before deleting, but in the event the 
author didn't have notifications turned on I'm copying it here for 

There are quite a few reasons this build doesn't belong on the AUR. 
Individually maybe no one of them pushed it over the line but I think 
all together they make a case this doesn't belong here. If you want to 
fork telegram, go right ahead but 1) don't call it official when it's so 
patched up as to be completely different, 2) store the sources off the 
AUR somewhere on your own such as a Github repo, 3) don't link the 
upstream URL to the official site, link your fork, 4) don't post things 
that are only personal convenience. If they are useful for others that's 
fine, but make a project out of it, then come here to package it. Don't 
make the AUR the project.
