[aur-dev] AUR new package notification

I'm not subscribed to new package notifications but it seems like AUR
this feature has been disabled for a while now. At least, I did neither
find a cronjob running "newpackage-notify" nor the "tupkgs.conf"
configuration file that is required to run this script. Browsing the
aur-dev archives, I also found a mail  from 2008 reporting that the
cronjob was obviously disabled.
Do we still need this at all?
Given that there were no complaints for more than two years and that
there's a RSS feed  for new packages, I'd say we can drop the
notification script as well as the field on the account page.
