It seems the ability to adopt an orphan then delete it is be exploited by an evil minority. e.g. http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=373831

Can we restrict deletions to devs/TUs?
This task depends upon

You mean that if a user hits the 'delete' button a mail is send to aur-general (or some other way) to notify TUs so we can approve it?

Something like that... I think that just because someone maintains a package they shouldn't be able to delete it. Especially since anybody can adopt an orphan (around 10% of packages in the AUR) and then delete it instantly.

If it does not increase our workload too much I think it is worth to consider. I mean about how many packages per day/week are we talking about?

ps. maybe post a link to aur-general so all TUs see this?
