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.
