Hi Holmes, hi Esclapion,

you might have noticed that with todays stable update some of the known
to you packages are gone from our repositories. This is due our recent
changes made to manjaro-tools and the way we distribute now our
configurations for each edition.

So this is what changed so far:

1) we use now more settings packages[1]
2) profiles are only skeletons now [2]
3) manjaro-tools got new features like logging and other features[3]

Some of your profiles simply don't match our expectations. That is why
they are not merged with our repository. I strongly recommend to adopt
to our changes or fork our tools if you want to maintain them on your own.

Our next step is to verify the remaining profiles now on
functionality[4]. We are pleased that you check your profiles before we
drop them when we have no feedback on them in time.

Hope you understand our worries and why we have to be a little harder on
quality matters.

kind regards
Philip and the development team
