When an Arch package is moved from the official repos to AUR, are the reasons for that move usually posted somewhere? The package's AUR page seems like an obvious place to look, but, for example, I don't see any explanations for why inxi and mirage were moved when I look here:

https://aur.archlinu...ackages/mirage/

Well, the only reason I know of would be that the TU (Trusted Users) stopped maintaining it due to popularity and other reasons.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

I'd be surprised if inxi in particular was dropped due to lack of popularity, so maybe "other reasons." It would be nice if details were provided right there at those packages' AUR pages, but I guess it's no big deal.

Why not pose the same question at the Arch forums or on Josh's G+ site. :whistling:

From the inxi site,

Arch Linux: inxi is in either in the Community Repos or in AUR (it varies year to year), so just install inxi as you normally would any other package. It's usually reasonably current.

Well, the answer to the question I asked at the beginning of the thread seems to be, "Maybe, but you'll have to do a little digging." Similar to what the OP asked here: https://bbs.archlinu...c.php?id=237943

Cool, I get the picture.

h2 has been very active with inxi development recently, converting it to Perl from bash/awk and adding some new features.
