I noticed the package st has been removed from the community repo and added to AUR.
I was wondering why, but all I could find is this commit:
I was also unable to find any information relating to the topic (cf. mail subject) on the Arch Wiki or general web, so I'd like to ask:
1. What is the best way to find rationale about package removal or old package logs in general? E.g. pacolog doesn't work on st any more (I guess the logs are removed together with the package?) and even looking for the message linked above felt like there should be a better way.
2. If the commit message above is the only resource to be had, is there some kind of best practices concerning similar commit messages? I would have appreciated at least a short rationale for the removal being included.
3. What was the rationale in this particular case? The st-git¹ AUR package seems quite popular, so I was surprised to see its non-vcs version removed from community (I would expect the opposite to happen for popular packages).
