That's definately a problem.

   libretools/dbscripts/parabolaweb feature request: Ensure that no
   replace=()ed package is available on the repos.

Also a problem is that blender-spacenav-libre doesn't have a PKGBUILD
in abslibre.  It seems that it was in [artistic], and that the
PKGBUILD didn't survive all those things being moved to [prc].

   libretools/dbscripts/parabolaweb feature request: Ensure
   consistency between abslibre and the repos.

Also, this made me aware that etckeeper is out of date.

   libretools/parabolaweb feature request: Add an in-band way to
   "subscribe" to various upstream changes--the package in Arch, the
   package in AUR, or the actual upstream.

Happy hacking,
