[aur-requests] [PRQ#11354] Deletion Request for firefox-always-nightly

How do I tell this request to, politely, go away?

always-nightly has a number of differences to -nightly, not just the
"always" part of it. But if this *is* the main point of difference, then I
contest the claim that -nightly has "pretty good tracking". As a blatant
example, right now it is on 62.0a1.201805*09*, while always-nightly
downloads 62.0a1.201805*10**.*

There is also the fact that firefox nightly updates *twice a day*, not
once, so the -nightly package is *never* accurately tracking the latest.

Some more occurences from the firefox-nightly comments:

57 is out, could you post the new source?

57.0a1 is out now, needs a version bump.

tux-86 <https://aur.archlinux.org/account/tux-86> commented on 2017-07-21

Version string seems now 56.0a1.-1

That's two fairly recent occasions where firefox-nightly was behind. The 57
one shows no update in 8 hours at least. Firefox-always-nightly would have
produced the right version within a few minutes of the update actually
going out. *That* is why it exists.
