Maybe I can help (as the luakit author).

Ideally luakit-git should be the development checkout of luakit
however it was setup to track the master branch. The "problem" here is
that I use the master branch to point to the latest stable release and
do all the development, merging & testing in the develop branch.

So there is no difference between luakit-git and the [community]
version thus the removal request.

Perhaps this deletion request should be for luakit-develop-git and we
update luakit-git to track the develop branch.

I've also got some PKGBUILD updates here which fix parallel building &
cleanup the make options.


What do we want to do?
