Why was pandoc-citeproc-bin and pandoc-crossref-bin removed?

I was surprised to see these two packages: pandoc-citeproc-bin and  pandoc-crossref-bin were removed from the AUR.
These packages were complementary to pandoc-bin.
I could not find anything in the mailing lists either. Can anyone point out the reason why these were removed.

Indeed, the git repository still exists but https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pandoc-crossref-bin gives you 404.

FWIW, I cant find any references to these packages in aur-requests or aur-general for the past 3 months (and pandoc-crossref-bin had commits in April, so it was actively maintained within the last 3 months).  I'm not a regular follower of these lists, so perhaps not as much can be inferred from this - but I suspected if there was a deletion request it'd have been noted in the aur-requests feed.

First post ever just to support those packages! They are really useful for somebody that doesnt want the 20+ Haskell packages.
