Thanks Lukas for the follow up, and also for the work achieved on AUR 3.0.0!

Does this mean that all existing source tarballs will obtain full
.AURINFO metadata?
This is especially important for external tools like helpers. As of
AUR 3.0.0, it is difficult to use the dependencies info from the RPC
interface to solve the dependency tree, since only the newly uploaded
packages have the metadata generated.
