Quick way to get delated PKGBUILD file.

Is there some more elegant way of getting the PKGBUILD for packages dropped from the Arch repository.

I've resolved to `git clone https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-packages` and roll back before the commit that deletes the package.

I've tried GitHub events API to check commit that removes the package related branch but it gets only so far in the past.

$curl 'https://api.github.com/repos/archlinux/svntogit-packages/events?per_page=100&page=4'
{
  "message": "In order to keep the API fast for everyone, pagination is limited for this resource. Check the rel=last link relation in the Link response header to see how
far back you can traverse.",
  "documentation_url": "https://docs.github.com/v3/#pagination"
}

asp[1] can help with that if you know the name of the package.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Nope, `asp` throws an error saying `unknown package` when called with deleted package name...

Today I need to reinstate `python2-netifaces` but originally when posted I was going to restore `opencolorio1`

Re: Quick way to get delated PKGBUILD file.

https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community -> search opencolorio1 -> commits -> db-remove -> parent -> browse files then append opencolorio1 to path giving
https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-c … ncolorio1/

python2-netifaces was a split package with python-netifaces before it was dropped
