Yeah, this already has seemingly at least two orphan requests, when it's time, they'll orphan it.

@eschwartz thanks for clarification

We're not going to orphan a package that has seen very recent maintenance without giving the maintainer the full two weeks grace period. We are also at 4 orphan requests and counting, which is completely unnecessary, so please stop that now, everyone.

Special exceptions may be made if the maintainer hasn't logged in to the AUR in a long time, and/or the package has been flagged out of date for many months. The AUR software automatically accepts requests on packages which were flagged out of date >=6 months ago. None of that is the case here.

I strongly recommend you all learn the fine art of patience.

I agree, orphan request is the way to go. Though I don't know how this is handled. I requested one for a package once and it was orphaned in a few hours. This one seams to have requests for days and nothing is happening

I'll be happy to suspend the account of anyone creating duplicate packages when they know this is against the rules of submission. Maybe then people will learn that it doesn't matter how out of date this package is, your options are either submit an orphan request for this one or do nothing at all.

I guarantee you I'm more frustrated than you are.

"Check the AUR if the package already exists. If it is currently maintained, changes can be submitted in a comment for the maintainer's attention. If it is unmaintained or the maintainer is unresponsive, the package can be adopted and updated as required. Do not create duplicate packages."

I understand you are frustrated but do not create your own package. Just follow the procedure and email support staff and most likely you will become the maintainer.

I'll go ahead and send an email as well.

I'm sick of waiting for mailspring to be updated so I'm maintaining I'm subscribed to the git repo and use mailspring every day, so updates will be prompt.

@rojo you just run sha256sum FILENAME and it gives it to you.
