As mentioned in my recent email [1], as-is the package duplicates causing serious issues with GLVND enabled systems.
In particular - Arch has been fully GLVND since 23 Nov 2019, when the final piece (server-side GLVND for xorg) xorg-xserver v1.20.6 was released.

Here is how I've addresses the issue [2].

- bumblebee changes will be reported separately
- reverse PRIME is untested - don't have physical access to my test machine
- legacy nvidia drivers (pre 390.x) that live in AUR can carry an "legacy" version of this package. Afaict such drivers are not to be supported by official Arch packages.

This task depends upon

Since we're removing huge core part of the project I wonder if renaming it to primus-stub would be warranted.
This way it's obvious a) what it actually is and b) removes any ambiguity wrt the official project.

Can do some extra patches, considering there's interest in the topic.

Humble poke?

Similar to the BB side, I think we can effectively consider upstream dead and move on with the transitional package proposed. Right?
