So, in recent updates, I run
update -a and recently started getting notification that
qwikaccess-git is orphaned. So, I checked the
aur for it, and found that the upstream github account
librewish is completely gone, or inaccessible to the public (or even logged in).
This is what I get when I run updates:
--> Updating AUR packages with paru.. :: Looking for AUR upgrades... :: Looking for devel upgrades... :: orphans: qwikaccess-git
When trying to load the upstream github repo, I'm getting a 404 error, and the entire /librewish/ account seems to be gone.
I've attempted to manually clone this aur repo and try to run
makepkg -s to see what would happen:

The PKGBUILD just downloads from the git repo, which now no longer seemingly exists. I tried searching the forum to learn more about the missing
librewish account - and it appears that all reference to librewish on github and twitter were removed. There were old cached content on twitter that seemed to indicate that
librewish is a founder of Garuda Linux, so just wanted to see what's up.
