Details

The RSS feed at https://aur.archlinux.org/rss/ seems to have dropped the description field for each item. Or to be exact, the description tags are there, but without any content. This used to contain the description as found on the individual AUR package page. Without that info there's very little to go on to determine what purpose a package serves (which isn't always obvious by its name). Not sure when exactly this infor started to disappear from the feed.
