Default raggle: drop pkg to AUR?

I'm currently maintaining raggle, which has been abandoned
upstream for some time. The recent rebuild of ruby broke it
horribly and thus far I have been unable to patch it in
such a way that it functions as expected. I hate to remove
this package as it seems to be quite popular, but given
its condition and upstream status, I think removal to AUR
is best unless someone else can provide a working patch.
Thoughts?

That's what has to happen. Maybe it will encourage someone enough to
become the new upstream.

Please start threads regarding [community] packages on aur-general so
that other TUs can respond. I didn't notice I was replying to
arch-dev-public and got my message bounced.

It doesn't seem to be popular; it has 0.29% usage according to pkgstats.

I'd say drop it.
