ocaml-yojson removed from [community] with no announcement?

Hi everyone,
I maintain part of the google-drive-ocamlfuse ecosystem of AUR packages.  One of these was ocaml-yojson (a dependency of gapi-ocaml).
It was in the AUR until being moved to [community] in February of last year.  Now it seems to be missing from [community].  I am wondering if it has been intentionally removed (as I cannot seem to find any announcement), and if so I should recreate it in the AUR, or if this is a mistake.

Thanks,
nerflad

I doubt this was accidental -- it's likely the package was no longer needed for the purpose it was added to [community], or else nobody wanted to maintain it any more. Feel free to resubmit it to the AUR.

Thanks, looks like it and several other ocaml packages were removed because the upstream maintainers abandoned them :\  I readded them to the AUR.
