Hello AUR users!
I borrowed an arduino recently and found the *arduino*-part of
the AUR to be very messy. Here are my findings:
## arduino64-updated 
Outdated for ages, the copy of a copy of the arduino-PKGBUILD.
Can be deleted.
## arduino64  and arduino 
The difference is difficult to find, the descriptions do not help in
any way. arduino depends on avrdude, while arduino64 includes an
outdated, but patched avrdude from the Arduino-project.
I wrote an architecture-independent PKGBUILD that could replace
arduino and an adapted one that includes the patched avrdude.
It could replace arduino64.
I am not sure about the naming of the two new packages, but I think
it would make sense to call the package with included avrdude "arduino",
because the Arduino SDK includes avrdude by default.
The other one could be called "arduino_unpatched". (I am using an
underscore here to distinguish it from the "mainname-modulename"
notation used by arduino-onewire (which is an add-on for arduino)
tl,dr: arduino64 can be deleted, I would like arduino to be orphaned.
## arduino-pyro 
I uploaded my new PKGBUILD for the arduino-without-avrdude package
under this name to get feedback.
It can be deleted.
