this is a proposal to remove nextaw from community. It is not needed by
any community package. It once was a dependency of siag-office, which
has been moved to unsupported long ago and is still unmaintained there.
I am not against removing, but as I understand
http://siag.nu/neXtaw/usage.shtml nextaw is drop in replacement of
libXaw. So all packages which depend on libxaw can be used with nextaw.
According to pkgstats not many people do so (0.13 %).
Cite: "Just replace libXaw.* or libXaw3d.* with libneXtaw.so.?.? and make
that were pointing to libXaw point to libneXtaw "
That means to me, the user has to manually set symlinks, an if he is able to
understand this and to do so, he should also be able to compile from a
PKGBUILD in AUR.
Taking the replacement into consideration, judging from pkgstats, I
vote for removal.
