I received a notice that several of my suckless builds (dwm-distrotube-git, st-distrotube-git, dmenu-distrotube-git) have been deleted from the AUR due to being "for one person". That's certainly reasonable but these packages are not for one person. A lot of people use these and depend on them. Again, these builds are not for one person. What can be done about this?
Thanks in advance, DT
I just had a glimpse on your software and I see why it got mass-removed. Maybe you shouldn't describe the packages as:
"My heavily-patched customized build of the Suckless simple terminal (st)." "My heavily-patched and customized build of the Suckless dmenu run launcher."
I can only speculate, but did you use the same package description in the AUR?
My suggestion to solve this: give the packages a new name and make clear that the software is a fork and something different.
pkgname: dst description: "dst (Derek's ST) is a suckless st inspired terminal with additional features"
