Reason: Singling out the AUR packages is not useful and will lead to maintenance burden if packages get dropped to AUR or picked up in the repositories. Formatting is inconsistent and Template:App should be used for all entries, though might need some work to abide by Template:App#Style. (Discuss in Talk:QBittorrent)

There are several packages available to install qBittorrent with:

https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent || qbittorrent
