Revision as of 13:32, 19 May 2008

NOTE: TU's are currently working through the list. You can still add packages but please check the whole page first.


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

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

  • 9base-devel - Hasn't been update since 25/12/2005. I think its not needed.
  • advi - seems to be unmaintainable for the following reasons
    • The newest version 1.7.3 needs camlimages 3.0.0, which cannot be found on the net
    • camlimages' cvs-sources do not compile
    • package advi 1.6.0 has a patchfile of 102k size
    • package advi worked fine in former days but does does not compile anymore. It is a pity!

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
