If you don't want packages to be removed by the given command, install
Or better, write a meta-package that keeps them in as a dependency (so
you also know *why* they are installed, and makes system housekeeping
easier in general).
pkgdesc='Dependencies for fooing bars from baz'
depends=(git meson libpng12 sl)
This way you know that e.g. libpng12 is installed on your system because
you occasionally like to foo some bars from baz.
