my previous post could be could be summarized like so:

the issue of "who is credited in the PKGBUILD?" is relatively

the issue of "is this package _actually_ well-maintained?" is
much more important

a package with one dedicated maintainer should indicate that the
package is better maintained than a "team-maintained" package

i am not against the idea of all PKGBUILDs being denoted as
"team-maintained"; but in that case, the "Maintainer" line is
irrelevant information to include in the PKGBUILD - its just
noise, with no value
