[aur-general] Massive remove request

I want to remove many packages, if it is possible.

First, the group lib32-gnustep-clang-svn:
-> Because it was dependencies of darling-multilib-git 
<https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/darling-multilib-git/>. Before, 
darling-multilib-git depended of group gnustep-clang-svn & 
lib32-gnustep-clang-svn, and today, it depends only of 
gnustep-multilib-clang-svn (a new group which replaces both).

Second, it is packages from The Northfield Project (an old fork of 
Wayland Project):
northfield-git <https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/northfield-git/> 
(Wayland fork)
norwood-git <https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/norwood-git/> (Weston fork)
-> Because Scott Moreau (A.K.A. soreau), the main dev, has not yet 
commited since 7 months! This fork is died, his activity 
(https://github.com/soreau?tab=activity) shows he continues to work on 
Wayland (and not Northfield). So I don't known if we can build these 
packages, because nobody uses these on Arch.

And last, it's about Psensor:
psensor-catalyst <https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/psensor-catalyst/>
-> Psensor (Catalyst) is Psensor, but with AMD proprietary driver 
support. Nobody uses it, I was alone, but I don't use more Catalyst. And 
I think it is bad to add the AMD Display Library (ADL) SDK in a package.

Thanks in advance,
