* [[AUR Cleanup Day]]

Revision as of 16:06, 4 December 2012

This event happened in September 2010 (Source).

TUs are currently working through the list. You can still add packages but please check the whole page first. The TUs will not delete any useful package.

The AUR has a large number of obsolete packages which could use cleaning up. Examples of packages that may be cleaned up are:

  • packages that have been renamed or replaced
  • old and unmaintained developmental (cvs/svn/etc) packages

Post suggestions of packages on this pages. Trusted Users will get together and go though the list in a couple of weeks and confirm which packages should be removed.

Please DO NOT REMOVE suggestions from the wiki page but add a comment on why it should be kept instead. Please list packages in alphabetical order!

Package List

Add new packages here - check for the package in the sorted lists below before adding

  • bmp-flac - doesnt work anymore
  • bmp-scrobbler - doesnt work anymore
  • boxee - deprecated by boxee-source
  • ct - project page and sources aren't available
  • divifund - "dead" project; it's very old and doesn't work with the latest versions of its dependencies
  • drift - project page and sources aren't available
  • eclipse-i18n-pack1 - not needed anymore (it's for old eclipse), broken source link
  • eclipse-i18n-pack2 - not needed anymore (it's for old eclipse), broken source link
  • eclipse-i18n-pack2a - not needed anymore (it's for old eclipse), broken source link
  • eclipse-i18n-packbidi - not needed anymore (it's for old eclipse), broken source link
  • entropy-cvs - old dev-version, Enlightenment project uses svn now
  • eselect - is it needed in Arch Linux?
  • evfs-cvs - old dev-version, Enlightenment project uses svn now
  • exquisite-cvs - old dev-version, Enlightenment project uses svn now
  • falldown - project page and sources aren't available
  • fbpager-git - broken links (see comment by hadrurus)

TU Working Area

For editing by TUs only! The wiki has a history so do not think you can get away with ignoring this... --Allan

Packages to Remove

In community:

Packages to Keep

  • atmel-firmware - no longer needed -- why?
  • autoconf-compat - too old to be useful -- it is for compiling old stuff, lets keep it, does not harm
  • aur-install - does this one still work and do we need it anyway? -- Seems to be actively maintained, no reason to delete. -- package is already REMOVED
  • amsn-plugins-texim - no longer exists -- it's here: [2] (StefanHusmann) -- package is already REMOVED
  • bin32-flashplayer-standalone - not needed anymore -- Still useful, because there is no native standalone flash player from Adobe on x86_64 systems. Mightyjaym (maintener)
  • blastwave - Dead projet, doesn't compile anymore. -- stefanhusmann: maybe only needs a maintainer.
  • btrfs - newer version (0.15) available, released May 29th, 2008. -- So this package should maybe be orphaned, no obvious reason to delete it. [Edit: orphaning should be requested in the aur-general mailing list. Dragonlord] -- package is already REMOVED

Remove from Filesystem

There are files on the AUR filesystem that have been created when poorly formed packages were uploaded. This is a secondary consideration.

There are also directories in /packages/ for which the package no longer exists. These probably need to be removed as well. All the packages that moved to community ALSO still exist there.

List here files that are in directories of existing packages.


This script will take care of packages that no longer exist.

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
# Run this script by providing it with the top path of AUR.
# In that path you should see a file lib/aur.inc
#
# This will remove files which belong to deleted packages.
#
# ex: php cleanup dev/aur/web
#
$dir = $argv[1];

if (empty($dir)) {
        echo "Please specify AUR directory.\n";
        exit;
}

set_include_path(get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . "$dir/lib");
include("config.inc");
include("aur.inc");
include("pkgfuncs.inc");

exec('ls ' . INCOMING_DIR, $files);

$count = 0;

foreach ($files as $pkgname) {
        if (!package_exists($pkgname)) {
                echo 'Removing ' . INCOMING_DIR . "$pkgname\n";
                system('rm -r ' . INCOMING_DIR . $pkgname);
                $count++;
        }
}

echo "\nRemoved $count directories.\n";
