So... I just noticed a package was added to [community] that I am
certain did not pass any of the criteria required for being added.
When I looked in the AUR for that package less than a week ago as a
potential replacement for an old and unmaintained package in [core], it
was not even in the AUR... and I can find no evidence for it every
being added to the AUR in the time since. So it did not have 10 votes,
it definitely would not have 1% pkgstats usage.
So this is a reminder to everyone that there are rules about adding
packages to [community] for a reason. With the complaints about running
low on disk space being made lately, it seems we should remember to not
put unused packages into [community] to prevent the remaining space
