You're right. I was wrong. Upstream calls it uex. I will ask a TU to deny the merge and delete ultraedit.

When searching for packages in the AUR using the web interface the default is to search for package names and descriptions. So a search for "ultraedit" will already yield the "uex" package. So no problem there.

Also a Google search for "ultraedit arch linux" finds the uex package.

Which search for ultraedit turns up empty-handed?

It's much more inconvenient looking for ultraedit and not finding it even though it's available.

Isn't this switch inconvenient for current users? They will not realize uex is no longer updated and stay on the aging version. So they would have to manually uninstall uex and install ultraedit instead.

Yours now. I would transfer ownership anyway once the merge request was approved.

To me this seems like an attempt to hijack the package that I maintained for a few years now (and btw is currently up-to-date). Package ultraedit conveniently is maintained by you.

How do you explain this?

This should be renamed to ultraedit for clarity's sake.

@roheim: I reduced uex dependencies to the bare minimum as reported by namcap and verified the results using pactree. Maybe you can give the new version a try. Regards, Peter.
