Although I understand your disagreement regarding the comment merge I 
can't see why two packages that provide pretty much the same 
functionality should exist in AUR. It's not like qastools is a huge 
multi-module package that would be better off if built separately. It's 
basically three binaries and some pixmaps. In my opinion it makes more 
sense to replace qasmixer with the complete package, since this is what 
upstream seems to suggest. That's why I asked for the removal and I'm 
sorry if this caused some kind of misunderstanding. I'm willing to 
reupload qasmixer back up, but honestly I can't see the point for such
