FS#153 - infinality-bundle is dead

I am new to manjaro (archlinux). I don’t know how the package “infinality-bundle/fontconfig-infinality-ultimate” gets installed in my system. Maybe it’s installed by default manjaro release or maybe it’s installed by some other packages. Now, whenever I run

sudo pacman -Syy

, I will get the following error msg:

error: failed retrieving file 'infinality-bundle.db' from : Could not resolve host:
error: failed to update infinality-bundle (download library error)

It seems infinality-bundle and is dead. By googling, I found this article ““. The workaround looks very complicated and it doesn’t look like a real fix to me. Some people did meet problems by following steps described by that guide.
I am new to manjaro and really don’t know what to do. Will manjaro team fix this issue later so that I can get rid of infinality-bundle and that error magically by running `sudo pacman -Syyu` in the future?

Thank you very much.
