Both. The current plan is as follows:
A couple of weeks before the official release of 4.0.0, I will reset the setup on aur-dev.archlinux.org and create an empty Git repository for each package that exists in the AUR at that moment. The package maintainer will be retained so that nobody can take over anybody else's package. AUR package maintainers are then asked to upload their packages to aur-dev.archlinux.org and co-maintain them on aur.archlinux.org and the Git repository on aur-dev.archlinux.org for some time (roughly four weeks). Users who have already been using Git for their AUR packages can add .SRCINFO to all commits and import the whole history.
At some point in time, I am going to remove all package bases that have not been uploaded to aur-dev.archlinux.org and move everything from aur-dev.archlinux.org to aur.archlinux.org. It is a huge AUR cleanup.
