Hi, I got the below sent to me regarding a pkg I have in AUR.

I guess it should be deleted as per the request. I believe that requires
a mail to this list?


I verified [1] the sender's address is indeed the upstream developer.

I'm the developer of GSmartControl and I see there is an
Arch package of gsmartcontrol-svn here:

Could you please remove this package? I keep getting bug
reports for it, but the thing is, the SVN version is not intended
for public consumption at all. It may not build, may not run,
may destroy your data, etc... Plus, it's in the middle of active
rewrite/refactoring right now and is in no state to be even compiled.
