There's 2 packages that you could remove to test the script.

There's my proftpd package that noone seems to be interested in picking 
up. A package in community depends on it, so it'll need to be moved there. 
I have an updated PKGBUILD and fixed daemon script that I could send you 
so you could put the fixed package in community.  Alternatively, I could 
build the packages but you'll need to test the x86_64 one because of 
reasons mentioned in the proftpd thread.

There's also acroread. The discussion about it seems to have 
settled down.
