I don't know why the old texlive-dummy is removed from AUR so I created this. I just looked up the --asume-installed and I think they are very different. IMO the former is more likely to be a temporary solution. I don't want to have any inconsistency in my package dependency and texlive-dummy seems to be the only solution. I don't think such functionality can be replaced by --assumend-installed.

This will get flagged for deletion again because the functionality is built-in to pacman.

pacman --assume-installed texlive-bin=2017.44590 etc.

It is however more convenient to have a separate package instead of adding a dozen command line arguments when installing a package.
