>> stardict-ncce-ce is also orphaned.
> Done.
>> 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.
> Done
>> *Packages created for other reasons:*
>> idjc-latest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35076) is poorly
>> named and should be called idjc-git
>> spideroak-latest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47096) is poorly
>> named and should be called spideroak-beta. It is actively maintained.
>> xf86-video-intel-newest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=22968) is

>> yaffs2utils-latest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=46674) is
>> poorly named and should be called yaffs2utils-snapshot but it's maintained

>> josm-latest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=13569) is poorly

>> metslib-newest (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=43739). I'm not

Also josm-svn and josm-latest-svn should be consolidated. I'll take a
look at these later, and I'll probably update them.
