There are three types of requests that can be filed in the Package Actions box on the package details page:
- Orphan Request: Request a package to be disowned, e.g. when the maintainer is inactive and the package has been flagged out-of-date for a long time.
- Deletion Request: Request a package to be removed from the Arch User Repository. Please do not use this if a package is broken and can be fixed easily. Instead, contact the package maintainer and file orphan request if necessary.
- Merge Request: Request a package to be merged into another one. Can be used when a package needs to be renamed or replaced by a split package.
