You should "adopt" the package and become the new maintainer, perhaps.

 Hi Everyone,

A couple of years ago, I raised an issue I had encountered with the arcs package (see below for the complete run of messages). A solution was proposed by Michael Sharpe and Joseph Wright wrote that he would mention the issue on c.t.t., as messages to arcs' author bounced. The solution, which I add manually to arcs.sty is:

"The arcs package depends on the relsize package which did change a few months ago in a way that requires a small change in the arcs package. You need to add the line (just after \RequirePackage{relsize} is a good place}

\long\def \@gobblethree #1#2#3{}

and then change the line

\let \rs at size@warning = \@gobbletwo


\let \rs at size@warning = \@gobblethree

because, in relsize.sty, the macro \rs at size@warning is now defined to have three arguments, the last of which (6.0pt) was being left as printable text. This problem is a LaTeX issue and has nothing particular to XeTeX."
The arcs package was never updated and the issue persists. Is there anyway these changes could be incorporated into arcs.sty? I use arcs quite often and it would be a great help if the changes could become part of the code.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Thank you, all, for your feedback. I can wait for the fix to be applied.
Joseph: if you hear anything, could you please post it here?

Message to the arcs author bounced. I'll raise this on c.t.t.: the
package is LPPL so a change can be sorted out if he can't be found.
