[aur-general] Leaving ArchLinux

I'm sorry to say that I've just had to move away from Arch Linux 
on my main PC; I've had a great time and I'm going to miss most 
of it, but I just needed a debian environment sometimes, and 
I was spending more and more time in debian chroots.

I have 25 `packages on AUR`_, none of which has many votes, but 
I don't want to leave them to rot, so this is my plan.

.. _`packages on AUR`: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?K=valhalla&SeB=m

First of  all, if anybody is interested in one of my packages 
let me know and I'll orphan it so that they can take them over.

For the rest, I am keeping the old Arch partition around 
and chrooting into it when they need mainteinance; after a few 
months if I find out that I'm not giving them as much love as 
they need I'll start orphaning them, but I'll keep subscribed 
to the comments and try to keep them up to date until 
they are adopted.

I hope that this way I'll be able to move away without leaving 
stuff to bitrot in AUR.

Thanks everybody,

Elena ``of Valhalla''
