Peter, the work you put into AUR is very much appreciated.  It's
unfortunate that [extra] was allowed to enter the state of brokenness
it currently is in, but that doesn't in any way detract from the value
of your work.

Based on a very small sample, it seems some of the packages in [extra]
were updated about 11 days ago.  Some of these have since been
reverted back to the HP versions again.  Is there some easy way to
quickly go through the packages in [extra] to identify which ones
still aren't on the HP version?
