AUR broken links cleanup

Currently, I count 10 window managers listed which are no longer in the AUR. I'm wondering if these WM's should be de-listed after a short period of time. AUR maintainers have had some time to re-upload their packages. The fact that neither the original maintainers nor others have seen fit to re-upload these packages probably indicates that interest in these WM's is very low so perhaps they don't warrant being listed here. -- Chazza (talk) 15:18, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Done, I took the liberty to also redirect any wiki pages to this article. Closing. -- Alad (talk) 18:49, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Reopening, I'd like to spend a word for saving Stumpwm and Tinywm: the former seems to be still quite actively developed and decently big on GitHub; the latter, as also noted by Alad, has remarkable educational value, and buried down in the See also link without even a description is not enough IMO. If it helps, I can easily reupload their PKGBUILDs (and however orphan them afterwards). — Kynikos (talk) 02:18, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm not against relisting those - they both sound as if they could be of interest. I just thought it would be good to clear out the ones nobody had any time for. -- Chazza (talk) 08:42, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok. So as those two have been relisted, I'll close this again. -- Chazza (talk) 07:38, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
Update: I've resubmitted the packages as promised. — Kynikos (talk) 03:10, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
