I do maintain a lot of packages in AUR, and most of these will stay there.

However we have a decent part of our community that likes the suckless [0]
projects, including dwm, dmenu, st, slock and some more. Vis is a perfect fit
here and I am sure a lot of people will use it once they know about it.

Perhaps advertising it here is enough to get the votes. Let's see of it makes
its way.

"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
