Man, you know that you have removed most of the packages from your
"draft" from [extra].

And I need to install three times as many packages from AUR as I needed
three years ago just because they have been removed from the repos to

And the repos of Arch Linux are pretty small compared to other distros
anyway. That's always mentioned as disadvantage in reviews of Arch
Linux. This is a bit compensated by AUR, but if you regularly move
important or popular packages to AUR then Arch Linux will become a
second Gentoo and for some people who want or need a binary distro

And no, Arch Linux is not a distro from developers for developers
anymore. This may have been in the beginning or Arch Linux but is not
true anymore.
