While being in line with what Doug wrote on the topic, I agree, that it
took quite some time to upgrade, but behold! dnscrypt-proxy 2.0.8 is now
in community-testing (btw: no, not just c/p) [1].
I do understand that a longer wait time can be frustrating for users,
but it's no reason to get aggressive about it.
The upstream situation was far from "easy going" IMHO, which was all the
more reason to wait and see what would happen.

A few (unpaid) hands are trying to keep up the shape of what Arch is. I
have the feeling, that sometimes it is easily forgotten, that we are a
community of like-minded (and from what I read, passionate) people. If
you find a problem, go ahead and fix it (e.g. by applying to become a
TU and engaging in the overall quality of the distribution), but please
keep in mind, that we're all doing this in our free time.
