Perhaps you could point the URL to a page (Gist on GitHub, or something) you keep up-to-date with the changes and patches used.

The TU "alad" deleted my package, firefox-clean, from the AUR. I'm assuming this is a mistake, but I can't contact alad directly because their email is hidden on their profile. At first glance, it may appear that my version of the Firefox PKGBUILD in Extra does not do anything notable, but this is not the case. My package is intended to do three things:
- Set sensible default options that most users will want in the first
place. 2. Eliminate *at compile time* code that is not web-browser related (e.g. Pocket). 3. Fix pain points for power users with small, maintainable patches. (e.g. inclusion of a restart button in the file menu)
At least items 2 and 3 cannot be done with adjustments to user.js, as the deletion request claims.
I don't claim that many people will want to use it, but for those who might, having a package in the AUR to use could save a considerable amount of work. Inclusion in the AUR has never been dependent on the number of users the package benefits, and so far as I can see, firefox-clean doesn't break any rules.
Can I recreate the package, or can it be reinstated?
