Please remove that. Commenting every single update will clutter up the comments
page and make it harder to follow discussions.
If you want to track AUR updates in the absence of a built-in notification
system, write a script or use one of the existing AUR trackers or helpers. I
generally only care about updates to packages that I use, so paconky is good
enough for me. To give another example, I have attached a very simple script
that accepts a list of package names and prints out their last modification
times in a sorted list. It depends on python3-aur.
