Repentinus  filed a deletion request for gitit :
The package does not conform to the Haskell package guidelines and includes around a hundred third-party dependencies as sources, a number of which are available packaged in the Arch repositories. I have invited the maintainer to fix the issues, but they declined.

Rufflewind, could you please rewrite this PKGBUILD to conform to the
Haskell package guidelines?

@Repentinus This package has a large number of aging dependencies
and runs into version conflicts easily. Freezing dependencies was necessary for getting it to build reproducibly. Stack would have been a good choice but Gitit doesn't play well with that either: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=gitit&id=c2b9a66c0e6509...
Let me know if you have an alternative approach for building Gitit
that works reliably.

Rufflewind, PKGBUILDs support versioned dependencies. Dependencies
requiring a specific version not available in the Arch repositories should have separate AUR packages created for them and this PKGBUILD should depend on those.

That is not a feasible approach given the number of dependencies.
Request #26130 has been rejected by Foxboron :
Deletion is probably not the appropriate action here regardless.
