When I look at the AUR sometimes, I don't laugh - I cry. The current
state of the AUR makes Arch Linux look like a very bad joke.

They should first learn it, and then start uploading to the AUR. In
particular, you should not upload to the AUR instantly.

Error and inexperience can occur while learning. If you upload to the
AUR, I expect you to have polished and finished material, not your first

There's enough places with kind people who will look at your PKGBUILD
and point out your mistakes. The AUR isn't one of those places.
