As far as I remember, they were Manjaro related, like mhwd (Manjaro
Hardware Detection) tools or something like this.

Well, I'm not sure what to think about them. Some are forks for
manjaro tools (like mhwd). So are they "legal" on AUR?

Some days ago, chaotic keyring - repository of Garuda Linux - was
removed. So, these packages could be remove too.

I'm just asking what trusted users think about these packages. Nothing
less, nothing more.
