Hi devs,

I have created a table of candidates for removal from the extra repo 
based on <1% usage in the pkgstats results.  I have gone through and 
flagged for keeping packages which are i18n, makedepends, or otherwise 
needed (in pacman testsuite, using on gerolde).  See the list here: 

There is probably other categories of packages we should keep (e.g 
drivers) and there are some fonts which might be considered i18n related 
so can you all go through the list a cross out the ones to be kept and 
giving the reason.

In a couple of weeks time I will remove all the orphaned packages 
remaining on that list and contact the maintainers of the rest so they 
can decide what to do with their packages.
