I am assuming the popularity of these packages is going to rise.
The newcomer glava-git alone got most of its popularity last week iirc,
and i'm expecting more over the next couple as development continues &
awareness increases. I definitely don't plan to publish unused/unpopular
packages to [community].

Right. I don't plan to promote any of my AUR packages without reason.
