Everything in our repos has been fixed to allow a smooth -Syu upgrade
path. We don't post news items for every package we remove (here
xorg-font-utils) or split/rename (-alias packages here). That's why the
discussion happens here before.

We are not responsible for AUR stuff or custom packages. And in this
case these packages had broken dependencies long before this package
renaming/split happened. A simple pacman -Qm check will also show what
happened to our repos.

We expect Arch users to follow this public mailing list here and fix and
rebuild related custom packages.
