[aur-dev] AUR2 New feature: Package Requests

This morning I was looking for package requests, that I may be able to
fill, on the bbs. After a few minutes of flipping through threads, I
realised that nobody maintains the forum. These threads do not get
edited properly to indicate that a request was filled. Every thread I
looked at which seemed to be a request, was in fact already filled.
Searching for a valid request seemed impossible. Who know how many
threads spanning those 99 pages are actually filled or not?

So I figured I may as well make a special section for it on the AUR
site. The templates are a bit ugly still, and there's no searching
implemented, nor do requests get marked as filled when a package gets
submitted, but there's time for that. Here are some screenshots of
what's done so far:

I discussed it with wizzo a bit and decided that comments weren't
neccessary, but a "pkgbuild attempt" field would be useful. Any
comments/discussion that people may have about the request can reside on
the ML or bbs.

* Request listing will have an "added" or "requested on" field
