Compiz was removed from the repos
but appeared in the AUR a good while later - 2013-07-11 , even though
Allan inquired about it in late May:

Recently ndiswrapper and cdfs have been removed from the repos but I
don't see them in the AUR. What is the rationale for this? Are the
other ndiswrapper / cdfs packages that are already in the AUR deemed
sufficient? Is https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fuse-cdfs-git/ the
same as 'cdfs' package that used to be in the repos?
A word about why the package has been dropped .e.g 'doesn't work with
linux 3.10 kernel' would be helpful.
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rusxmms/ has a comment that says
'removed from community'. Mentioning
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/36229 would be helpful.
