Some of these have been newly added to community.  Well, at least 
awn-extras-applets has and possibly man-pages-pt_br....  Remember to 
adopt your packages.

I was thinking of having an AUR cleanup day.  I tend notice a lot of 
packages that have been renames or obsoleted by another package and left 
in the AUR.  Not necessarily orphans either.  If we do have an AUR 
cleanup day, we should open a thread on the forums where users can 
suggest which package to remove.

If people like the idea, then I will organize it for a coming weekend.
