QCrusader [1] filed a orphan request for discord [2]:

There were a number of issues raised with this package and the
maintainer has chosen not to address them. While relatively minor they
are quite numerous for such a simple package.

Unfortunately this package, and discord-canary from which it was
copied, include freetype2-infinality as an optional dependency to
satisfy missing emoji in the application. This is not only incorrect
it could easily lead the application's young and often naive user base
to build and install something that will compromise the stability of
their system.

It appears the current maintainer has neither the time or respect for
Arch Linux's packaging standards to bring this up to snuff. As active
users have already volunteered not only criticism but corrections
perhaps this should be yielded to someone with the time and experience
to maintain it properly.
