There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for this to be moved to the AUR. From what I can see, it still has active development (I see current patches) and even though systemd automount exists, Arch should not be enforcing a single way of doing things.

In addition, by moving this to the AUR, that gives people that already had it installed a false impression that it's up to date, and in actuality anyone who had this installed beforehand that didn't check to see if it's in the AUR, have an unpatched package installed and could potentially be open to CVE's they weren't open to before.

I'm getting key errors when attempting to verify this. Is there a key server I'm missing?

I guess for Spring cleanup '21 https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2021-May/030419.html as I don't see autofs in Barthalion's orphan packages or Alad dropped packages

Why has this been dropped to AUR?

Why was this dropped from the official repos? This is a lot better than the systemd automount :/
