I propose clean up the orphaned packages as well. There are many
packages (about 900) that are orphan and also flaged as out of date. Aur
is becoming a cementary of old packages, many people abandon packages
that aren't need them anymore, or just have been dropped by their
One way can be delete all the packages that have been outdated for about
a year and have 2 months orphaned. Its a idea, there can be other
criteria. But, please consider thoroughly if the packages haven't been
updated in one year and have months orphan is very likely that isn't
used by anybody.
