The AUR has a large number of obsolete packages which could use cleaning 
up.  Examples of packages that may be cleaned up are:
  - packages that have been renamed or replaced
  - old and unmaintained developmental (cvs/svn/etc) packages

This is where you can help.  Post suggestions of packages in the AUR 
Cleanup wiki page 
(http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_CleanUp_Day).  TUs will get 
together and go though the list in a couple of weeks and confirm which 
packages should be removed.  Please do not remove suggestions from the 
wiki page but add a comment on why it should be kept instead.  TUs will 
take great care not to delete any useful package.
