It wasn't ignored. They keys were deliberately changed in the process.

The AUR was running on luna, which still hosts git.archlinux.org (where a
few projects still are) and lists.archlinux.org. No data was deleted from it,
only the AUR database and uploads were copied to the new machine.

I think the issue you refer to happened on the orion -> gemini migration and
I personally think that everything that runs as a service on Arch servers should
be properly tracked on ansible, even if it's a user service.
