This package http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=27124
has been out of date for quite some time, and his maintener hasn't yet
answered my email. I believe he is no longer interested in maintaining
it. I have attached my updated PKGBUILD, i have tested on both my
machines (i686&x64) and it works fine.
I was looking at how Gentoo creates packages and I noticed one thing, is
that Gentoo, during build, will use CPAN to get the required modules for the
package that is being built. I was thinking, I wonder if this could be
implemented into AUR?
The package 'php-imagick' in aur has been marked out-of-date for a long
time, it seems that the original maintainer is not interested in continue
maintaining it. And the version now in the aur may cause some error as the
imagemagick has been updated for several times.
I'd like to take the original maintainer's place to maintain this package in
aur, and I have made an up-to-date package. But I cannot submit it now. May
I take his place?
is anyone interested to maintain some of these packages or I can move
*someone* to [community] or AUR?
beep (needed by lm_sensors FS#20802)
cegui (needed by smc which is orphan too)
cx_freeze (eric-plugins optdepends)
fox (needed by 4 packages in [community] maintained by Sergej)
scons (needed by a lot of packages in [extra] to build)
sharutils (needed by any2dvd in [community])
yasm (needed by a lot of packages in [extra] to build)

I uploaded two new fonts with CJK glyph coverage to [extra] yesterday:
ttf-baekmuk and ttf-hannom. The former appears to be gone from AUR, so
many thanks to the person who took care of removing it.
Could you please remove ttf-hannom-usong too?

I agree that it's a bit of a hack, but in my mind it's a bit more than a way
to handle manually installed libraries. It's absolutely *not* something
can be substituted by archlinux packages, instead it's solving the following
- distribution-independent discoverability of available packages, useful
during configuration steps of building
- handling of different flavours of the same library, byte-compiled vs
native, threaded vs. non-threaded, used for linking vs used in the REPL,
- used by OASIS and probably other build tools
So I'm convinced that *both* findlib and arch packages is the way to go.

No, let's delete 'ocamlgraph' and possibly keep both the other packages.
