It seems I overreacted and hijacked my own thread.
I also made several mistakes and may have (unintentionally) offended people.
I apoligise to all posters in & readers of this thread.
There are decisions that need to be made, but I'm the one that needs to
make them , not TUs.
I do need to do some serious thinking and will keep radiosilence during
Some unfinished business :
Robin, you do have a valid point about lone_wolf-* not being good
If my creativity is not enough to chose good names, I should ask help
with picking names instead of choosing bad ones.
The question this thread started with is still valid
Are AUR VCS packages that depend on AUR VCS packages from other projects
a good idea and who should decide on that ?
I have some serious thinking to do
