That's the main reason why i asked for it. I have my own repo, maybe
that's why i'm not interested in [community]. But AUR have huge list of
orphaned, outdated, obsolette packages. Most of them can be deleted,
since they have no use now. I see them nearly everyday, and... Well, i
think you catch that. AUR needs moderators. AUR must be clean.
Sorry for my bad english =(
