milouse [1] filed a deletion request for boston-icon-theme [2]:

The upstream work of this package is released only through OCS
websites (gnome-look…), which prevent direct download. I first tried
to work around that by using git tarball for the git repository but:

- there is already another boston-icon-theme-git package which better
do that
- the upstream author say that there are differences between the git
repository and the OCS tarball¹. And thus this package may mislead
arch user, thinking they are using the package from OCS when in fact
it only use the git version.

Thus, until there is a viable solution to interact with OCS, this
package should be removed in favor of its -git brother.

Thank you very much
