Why do you want to become the maintainer? It's been out of date for a couple of weeks, and the maintainer just responded to something in the package comments a day ago. It seems reasonable that within a few days it will be updated.

Moreover, you have not attempted to discuss things with the maintainer in the AUR comments. That is the usual way of contacting the maintainer.

Thanks. I just updated the Package and wanted to commit the changes. In the wiki i did not find information on how to send pull-request. And posting the code in the comments is not a good workflow.

The AUR doesn't do pull requests.

So you've posted it in the comments now, but as far as I can tell, you changed nothing but the pkgver and build number. Pull requests aren't needed for this, because anyone can bump the version -- the out of date notification is all that is needed.

You've also changed the license from "Apache" to "custom", but you could just comment "the license is incorrect, please change it to 'custom' and distribute the license from https://developer.android.com/studio/terms".

Then the package maintainer could add that as a source=() url, or copy it into a plaintext (not HTML) file, or whatever is needed.
