Hi Fabian,

As per my previous email; while responding to your removal request, I
had a look at your other packages and noticed that a lot of them are
packages shipping custom configurations.

The AUR is not meant to be a repository for personal items and as such,
the packages shipping dotfiles were deleted. Please read the AUR
submission guidelines, found here:
