[aur-general] Are AUR VCS packages that depend on AUR VCS packages from other projects a good idea and who should decide on that ?

The 031274 message was an overreaction by me, but I should have added 
more test to the new request.

Creating 6 new packages and making sure they build takes time, when I 
submitted the new merge requests I had little time left.

Here's a long version :

The old scheme was pkgname_without_git-lw-git . It looked confusing and 
wasn't clear enough.

By changing to lone_wolf-$pkgname the name scheme looks a lot more 
consistent and the package is clearly linked to my aur/forum nick.

I tried to think of clearer naming but couldn't find a way to do that in 
less then 8 words, which would make the package names consist of 10 to 
12 words.

In my opinion lone_wolf-$pkgname is the best compromise between clarity 
and brevity.

Thanks for the reminder, Daniel .
