eschwartz [1] filed a deletion request for the-darkmod-tweaked [2]:

After discussion in the package comments for thedarkmod-bin, it was
determined that the custom installer used in the former package
"darkmod" violated the rules of submission on numerous levels.

The package was reimplemented by a Trusted User, and for good measure
cleaned up and renamed to something more closely matching upstream
intentions, but for all this, the core issue with
https://gitlab.com/es20490446e/the-darkmod-tweaked had nothing to do
whether mv is better than cp, or whatever else this justification

So I'm providing an alternative version for this package, called "the-
darkmod-tweaked", with the following enhancements over the official

    Separated saved games and downloaded mission repository for each
    Missions cache auto-cleanup.
    Enhanced installation speed compared with the official installer.

No, this is not acceptable. Your new package is still obfuscation and
violates the rules of submission.

Your "tweaks" in comparison with thedarkmod-bin do not answer the
question: "why was the previous package orphaned via moderator

You may not re-upload a package which was deemed inadmissible to the
AUR, and simply rename the pkgname in order to justify its existence.
You are REQUIRED to either:
- first defend your claim that the initial judgment "this is unfit for
the AUR" was incorrect, or
- fix the problems

You have done neither.
