When it first appeared (it was yesterday) it was empty PKGBUILD with
description "I'm not trollin" and foo.patch which had 256MB. The patch
seemed to be an empty file (like dd if=/dev/zero of=file). I thought
the uploader will ask for deletion soon but I didn't see anyone asking
for deletion of the package so I checked it on the AUR. It was there
but the patch had 1GB! So I asked for deletion myself.
