I see this practice over and over again, regardless the branch, people reporting AUR package breakage in updates announcements. For me this is a mess, even tho the reason behind why people might want to inform others for such issues can be a positive/informative one, or constructive, the presence of those comments are pointless and kind of off topic, or topic hijacking.
A couple of times people got offended by others that tried to explain why this should not be done. The latest example here:
Down bellow a couple of members had put their time into explaining again why AUR packages should not be mentioned in the update topics, and once again an endless explanation followed with condescendence ... Can we make it more clear that any such reports of AUR package breakage should go to #technical-issues-and-assistance:aur ? Maybe reinforce and inform members of the forum to open such topics if they fee like, and keep things clearly separate?
