GI_Jack [1] filed a deletion request for arachni [2]:


I don't have time to fix this shit.

1. Its a git build without the -git packagename
2. It bundles and installs ruby as root, into the root filesystem.
3. If this wasn't bad enough, this flaming pile of dogshit put the
bundle install instruction in the post install instructions so none of
the files are trackable by pacman/libpm. Cleaning up this giant
clusterfuck is going to be hard, and require manual intervention.
4. If that wasn't bad enough, those files interfere with the same
software packaged correctly, causing other pieces of software to fail.

I moved this from AUR3, then forgot about it. I would like to
apologize to the arch community at this time.
