I find it hard to believe that some random dude has registered an AUR account on just to request a deletion of yaourtix.
Code: [Select]
rdeckard [1] filed a deletion request for yaourtix-git [2]:

This package is based on yaourt, which is no longer maintained
(https://github.com/archlinuxfr/yaourt/issues/382#issuecomment-475039781).

[1] https://aur.archlinux.org/account/rdeckard/
[2] https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/yaourtix-git/

The request reason is also invalid, yaourtix is actively maintained.

There is no need to make big fuss about it.
There are also many *-git packages which are marked as "out of date" :D
Mna is as good as his tools.

And AUR is full of outdated packages, and I am pretty sure I saw yaourt itself in AUR about a week ago.

If someone wants it they now have to come to artix to get it.
I'm still using yaourt(ix), maybe out of habit. I'm so accustomed to its informational palette of colours, I find it hard to acclimatize to trizen's, which is the closest alternative. Removing it from the AUR was idiotic, regardless of its suspended development. It Just Works™.

I even have yaourt-gui still installed, especially when searching for stuff nothing beats its functionality.

Perhaps, but it's colourless and I have to actually read the contents instead of spotting the interesting part.  :o

Plus, trizen is written in Perl, that's an instant like. :D

Having just built yay from the aur yay  package, which required the 120MB "go" package as a make depend, reading the README.md in the src I found there is a binary version in the AUR too:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/yay-bin/
And a bit further down it says:
#### Yay does not display colored output. How do I fix it?
  Make sure you have the `Color` option in your `/etc/pacman.conf`
  (see issue [#123](https://github.com/Jguer/yay/issues/123)).
No idea if / how it works yet though!  ;D

Yes, and trizen works with Octopi too. It fits nicely in my Plasma scheme. ;)

Best regards.
