Hi Philip,

What is not good is that those package have been removed of the testing and
stable repos one day ago, so i don't see the interest of testing anymore.
And they are replaced by a package compiled yesterday, so fully unstable.

I regenerated those packages and it works now.

I think to release an lxqt based on manjaro-tools 0.10 for the moment, i
can't continuously adapt this profile to daily manjaro-tools changes.

So, i don't fit the requirements you wrote on github and you can remove the
lxqt profile.

> 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

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