#REDIRECT: [[DeveloperWiki:AUR Cleanup Day]]
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.''' TUs will not delete any useful package.
==Package List==
