But it has already been stated that the AUR, for the time being, can
remain as is (Loui mentioned shutting off the update script). With
that known, nothing, from your point of view, is going to change at
all. That's my issue here - that it's totally unrelated. Let's bring
revisit the voting vs pkgstats vs uberstats vs supervotes vs something
else later. Let's do THIS change that is actually on topic here, and
THEN talk about voting.
