The purpose of this meta pkgbuild isn't to be actually installed but to 
help find and monitoring pkgbuilds that depends on no longer existing or 
renamed packages/dependencies,

Ideally when everything is fixed "Required by ()" would be empty, now 
there are 977 between packages that depends on obsolete packages or 
renamed deps

For example have been deleted from the AUR 'qscintilla-qt4' and 
'cegui-0.7' but not the pkgbuilds that depends on them.

Said that, where I can read more about aur rpc?
