Default Packages that can be moved to aur

I would like to start a talk about packages that can be moved to aur, for
various reasons, not only because they are orphaned, but essencially due to
lack of maintainance upstream.

Feel free to comment and add other packages.

striim:
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/striim/
Project seem dead upstream, better alternatives exist

xf4vnc-xcliplistproto
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/i686/xf4vnc-xcliplistproto/
Depend on a cvs snapshot from 2007, not update for 3 years (project is dead ?)

xf4vnc-vncproto
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/xf4vnc-vncproto/
Similar to xf4vnc-xcliplistproto

sfarkxtc
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/i686/sfarkxtc/
Binary only, x86 only (x86_64 with lib32), doesn't seem maintain upstream

.......

I did
grep -R pkgname /var/abs/community
for all of them and nothing depends on them.

I also think these should be removed.

I agree, however I'd say the active maintainers should also be asked.

sfarkxtc is used for soundfonts [1]

A project may not be active, but the use of the tool may still be
valid. Sometimes, good/simple programs don't need updates.

Maintained packages should only be removed by the maintainer, if at all.
