Please, chaotic-aur is an archlinux-targeted unofficial repository.

GarudaLinux is merely allowed by me to use it for distribution of
packages that will work in any ArchLinux-based setup.
As we also receive contributions for BlackArch, ArcoLinux, and once
received from ArchLinuxCN.

I'll be glad if you don't mention my repository in this, or any other
discussion, as it has nothing to do with AUR or ArchLinux-project as
stated in https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/aur-requests/2021-May/052472.html.

Thanks for the hard work,
Pedro Lara Campos
Chaotic-AUR main maintainer.

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.
