I'm not going to comment on xterminus' removal, or anything of that sort. I'd just like to hear your reasoning for taking perfectly good PKGBUILDs and removing them from the face of the earth. Why not go into unsupported, if nobody wants to maintain them?
My reasoning for this was because it's about 200 packages that are all fairly specialized and are all created and updated with a special script we no longer have access to. This was just an initial suggestion to get the ball rolling and I'm fine with them going into unsupported if people think that's the better course of action to take. I guess that as long as the foundations are set up it's no big deal for anyone to adopt one and update it, so I'll agree with you that they are moved to unsupported instead.
