> stardict-ncce-ce is also orphaned.


> stardict-ncce-ec-new (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=40851) did
> the same thing for stardict-ncce-ec (
> https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19438). It also is orphaned and
> has no votes and stardict-ncce-ec is also orphaned.


> *Packages created for other reasons:*

> spideroak-latest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47096) is poorly

I've left these ones alone. I agree that the naming could be better,
but they seem to work. However josm-latest should really be improved
to incorporate md5sums, maybe using snapshot.
