Yes, you have good intentions. I am just finding it a little difficult
to understand your translated sentences completely, but I get the

I can delete them only based on the fact that they are old (they have
a maintainer and many votes), but someone else who uses the localised
Chinese version of Opera needs to verify that these are really no
longer valid.

Many votes, not orphan. May still be used, but I am not sure. IMO this
can be deleted, but I could not find any other shared qt3 dev package.

Deleted. opera-devel supersedes this.

Deleted. I can recall this was an impulsive upload.

Deleted. Valid but low votes, old, and confusing package name (should
follow opera-unite).

Valid package.

> 8. opera-unite-devel-qt3 http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=27321

Valid package.


So the following packages have been removed:


And the following are candidates for removal subject to further clarification:

opera-dev (maybe needs to be replaced with a new opera-devel-qt3?)

And the following cannot be removed:


Thank you for your help in keeping the AUR clean :)
