eschwartz [1] filed a deletion request for promptless [2]:

This package makes no sense. It's a one-line vanity script in
/usr/bin/ that runs

export PS1="➜ "

and directs you to source this in your bashrc.

Then it misunderstands the PKGBUILD(5) manpage by trying to put a
post_install message in the PKGBUILD file.

For bonus points it conflicts/provides *itself*, then builds from git
master. Luckily 'export PS1="➜ "' doesn't change much over the years.

Oddly enough, no, this wasn't submitted on April 1.
