Freedom issue #2323

[aurphan][aurpublish][aurvote] Remove from repos

Description

aurvote is a "tool to vote for favorite AUR packages". I think we should remove this from [pcr] since the AUR is not recommended.
This packet may be seen as refering "to third-party repositories that are not committed to only including free software".

The issue also applies on two other packages aurphan and aurpublish (both in [libre] so we would need to additionally blacklist them).

referring to the AUR is not really a freedom issue - none of those packages can actually download or install any non-free packages, can they?

an alternate suggestion, rather than removing them, these could be good candidates to adapt for use of a new user-curated PKGBUILD repository if that becomes a viable project

ill throw 2 more logs on the fire while we're at it:

pcr/package-query 1.8-2
    Query ALPM and AUR
pcr/packer-git  327.e86f847-1 [installed]
    Bash wrapper for pacman and aur
