== About ==
  
== E-mail invitation ==
+
The packages in [community] are cleaned up twice a year. It's this event and the [[Midyear Cleanup]].
  
{{bc|
+
The decisions about which packages are going to be moved happens before the 13th of December on the wiki, but the actual cleanup happens the 14th of December, by volunteers.
Season's greetings,
+
  
As December the 13th is approaching, I would like to extend a hand, to
+
Christmas Cleanup 2011 was a success, with 9 adoptions and 94 packages moved to unsupported. See the links below for more info.
invite you all to a Christmas cleaning of our packages.
+
  
As you may, or may not know, December the 13th is the longest night of
+
== Previous and upcoming Christmas Cleanups ==
the year, at least it were said to be so, before the Gregorian
+
* Christmas Cleanup/2012
calender was introduced.
+
* [[Christmas Cleanup/2011]]
If everything is not ready before Christmas, a group of restless dead
+
souls will come at night and vandalize your property. [1] [2]
+

Also, the 13th of December is the date for several highly memorable
+
* [[Bug Day]]
events, which contributes to making it an appropriate date for a
+
* [[AUR Cleanup Day]]
deadline for adopting orphans in [community] (before moving them to
+
* [[Midyear Cleanup]]
unsupported the 14th):
+
* [[Arch Linux Event Calendar]]
 
+
* [[Arch Translation Day]]
* Pope Celestine V resigned the papacy, 13th of December 1294, after
+
only five months. He was the third pope in history to resign
+
voluntarily. Benedict IX resigned in May 1040, but soon regretted it,
+
and returned to papacy. The reason for Pope Celestine V to resign was
+
to hope to return to his previous life as an ascetic hermit. [3]
+
 
+
* Malta became a republic within the Commonwealth of Nations, the 13th
+
of December 1974. This occasion is marked every year as Republic Day
+
(Maltese: Jum ir-Repubblika). [4]
+
 
+
* Erik XIV, king of Sweden and ruler of Estonia was born, the 13th of
+
December 1533. Unfortunately, he got mentally ill at the end of eight
+
year of rule and was murdered, probably with arsenic. [5]
+
 
+
* Robert Plot, the author of "Natural History of Staffordshire", was
+
born the 13th of December 1640. He was the first man to describe the
+
Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, an English folk dance involving reindeer
+
antlers and a hobby horse. The event takes place each year in Abbots
+
Bromley, a small village in Staffordshire, England. [6] [7]
+
 
+
* Niccolò Fontana Tartaglia, the first man to apply mathematics to the
+
investigation of the paths of cannonballs, died the 13th of December
+
1557. His work was later validated by Galileo's studies on falling
+
bodies. [8]
+
 
+
* Ana Justina Ferreira Néri, considered to be the first Brazilian
+
nurse, were born the 13th of December 1814. [9]
+
 
+
 
+
With this freshly in mind, I hope there remains no doubt that this is
+
the perfect date to gather up all the orphans for a big package
+
cleanup.
+
 
+
After the 13th of December (the 14th of December, then), we (TU's)
+
will move all packages that are still orphans from [community] to
+
unsupported (AUR). Maintaining [community] and unsupported are part of
+
our mission. [10]
+
 
+
For maintainers everywhere, giving extra care and attention to
+
packages that are merely flagged is also looked upon with good favor,
+
of course. That also goes for deleting or orphaning AUR packages that
+
hasn't been working for a while (say, for the last 6 months).
+
 
+
I hope you're all with me on this, and that we can stand together, as
+
one, to move all orphans to unsupported and shed some dead weight from
+
AUR.
+
 
+
I'll end this with two perfectly suitable and hand-picked inspirational quotes:
+
 
+
"Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
+
Willing is not enough; we must do."
+
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
+
 
+
"The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond
+
them into the impossible."
+
- Arthur C. Clarke

Hi,
+
 
+
The Christmas Cleanup became a success. Thanks to everybody
+
that has contributed by adopting packages, editing the wiki page or
+
giving suggestions for specific packages and how they should be
+
handled.
+
 
+
* At least 9 packages in [community] that were previously orphans have now been adopted.
+
* 94 orphans have been moved to unsupported (AUR)
+
* 61 orphans will be kept in [community] (hopefully they will be adopted later on)
+
* 18 maintainers are being encouraged to adopt the orphans which their packages depend on
+
 
+
Thanks. :)
+
 
+

Warm wishes,

About

The packages in [community] are cleaned up twice a year. It's this event and the Midyear Cleanup.

The decisions about which packages are going to be moved happens before the 13th of December on the wiki, but the actual cleanup happens the 14th of December, by volunteers.

Christmas Cleanup 2011 was a success, with 9 adoptions and 94 packages moved to unsupported. See the links below for more info.
