MarsSeed [1] filed a deletion request for sickrage [2]:

Abandoned, orphaned package. Original source repo gone, so in 2018 the
last maintainer (wrongly) switched the source link over to the source
of another AUR package:


Therefore this package is a misleading old abandoned duplicate now.

As per the README of the now proper and working fork:

Please do not confuse us with SickRageTV aka Sickrage.ca, which took
over the sickrage/sickrage repository in Oct 2018
We will never mine bitcoin on your machine, charge for a "service" or
to use the software.
We will never store your information, especially site logins to
private trackers.
We believe in honesty and loyalty and privacy."

It seems the SickRage software became malicious. Don't know if that
was the reason for its GitHub deletion.

Keep:   AUR/sickchill
Delete: AUR/sikrage
