Eschwartz [1] filed a deletion request for fontconfig-enhanced-
defaults [2]:

The package was originally submitted with the comment:
"This a renamed version of fontconfig-good-defaults. A Trusted User
removed it for a reason which is clearly invalid and will not respond
to my emails. Next time a Trusted User thinks about deleting this, I
challenge them to name one rule that it breaks and explicitly state
how it breaks it. I also expect Trusted Users to hold all other
packages in the Arch User Repository to the same standards."

It is presumably obvious why evading a package deletion by renaming is
not okay, but for additional context, the original deletion happened
in this PRQ: https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/aur-

Originally discovered because I was looking at the user's other
package "update-pacman-mirrorlist". Is this kind of behavior a trend?
