I am not a TU, but the discussion is open to normal users, isn't it?
There are at least two threads in the package request forum about
I do not know if the Users tried to contact filoktetes, though.

Subject: [aur-general] [DISCUSSION] filoktetes
As suggested by Callan, I will first start an open discussion about this
I tried to contact filoktetes for the last couple of weeks, first on
30th of January, after which I started a ping thread for him about a
week after that, and contacted him by private mail three days ago. As he
did never respond, I think it is time to take action.
So what is the deal...
- he missed the last 4 votes, which is by definition enough to start a
- currently 11 out of his 35 packages our out of date
- he did never say he is inactive (AFAIK), though he seems not to reply
He did update 2 packages on 31th of January, which is 1 day after my
first mail. The last update before that dates from the 8th of December.
I do not have anything against him personally, but I think this kind of
behavior hurts the [community] repo, and the AUR in general.
