Default Removal request: google-chrome-mini

This is not even funny: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=57611
- A clone of 'google-chrome-dev'
- Otherwise the same but the build and dependencies somehow more 'minimal'
- In practice completely useless

Package is the author's idea of KISS, saw a thread to that effect in the
forums.

Hi,

Do you still request the package to be deleted?

Well, the symlinks can be removed as they are unnecessary nowadays (the
man page and the .desktop _should_ still be installed), while 'no-gconf'
could just as well be manually installed from the AUR beforehand, as it
replaces 'gconf'.

Building 'openssl098' is the only thing that might bother some people.
It could be moved to optional dependencies, since not everybody uses the
built-in Pepper Flash anyway (which requires it).

At the _very least_, if this package was to be kept in the AUR (which I
disagree with) the name should be changed to something like
'google-chrome-dev-no-gconf'. But using the same logic every single
package in the AUR depending on 'gconf' could be cloned with '-no-gconf'
alternatives.

Is _this_ what we want?

BTW: it would be nice if someone pings me when it gets updated, I
notoriously forget things.

The maintainer doesn't seem to get the message. He re-uploaded it as
"google-chrome-no-gconf", even though I already explained the user can
just install "no-gconf" beforehand:

It seems someone already removed it. Thanks for the notice.
