eschwartz [1] filed a deletion request for ungoogled-chromium-bin [2]:

What is the purpose of this package??? It is not official binaries
created by Eloston, just an OpenSUSE Build Service running yet another
version of a PKGBUILD for ungoogled-chromium, under yet another name.

The appropriate way to provide binary builds of an AUR package that
takes a long time to build, is to provide one package that builds from
source, and a pinned comment referencing the repository that can be
added to pacman.conf (the OBS by definition provides repositories
suitable for pacman.conf)

Using the AUR just to download a prebuilt .pkg.tar*, extract it, and
repackage it so that people can find it in their AUR helper, is a
pretty convoluted way of not really doing that.
