Arch was doing a cleanup of their repos, and we sort of just followed
suit. It's true that perhaps autofs may still be useful for Artix
though. I personally use udiskie, but my automounting needs aren't very
complicated so maybe it's limited in some way I'm not aware of. As for
the autofs-s6 script, it's planned to be added. Currently, the s6
backend is undergoing a major refactor/rewrite so after that's settled
in, the script in universe can be added.
