I just added a section to the AUR article in the Arch wiki that
describes how to submit packages to the new AUR. Here is a draft of the
notification that I plan to send to all AUR package maintainers on June

    This is an automated email to all AUR package maintainers.
    Starting from June 8th, 2015, the official AUR web interface at
    aur.archlinux.org becomes a read-only archive for two months. During
    that period of time, you will not be able to submit package updates,
    comments or package requests.
    If you want to continue maintaining your AUR packages, please submit
    them to aur4.archlinux.org until July 7th, 2015. We reserved all
    packages you are currently maintaining on aur.archlinux.org, such that
    nobody else can overwrite them. However, if choose not to resubmit your
    package, we will cancel that reservation on July 8th. This allows
    anybody to take over the package. On August 8th, the read-only archive
    at aur.archlinux.org will be replaced by aur4.archlinux.org and the
    former aur.archlinux.org source tarballs will be made available on some
    For instructions on the new package submission process, please check the
    Arch wiki [1]. If you encounter any bugs, please report them to the
    aurweb bug tracker [2].
    Happy packaging!

Note that aur4.archlinux.org does not work yet but will updated to point
to the same IP address as aur-dev.archlinux.org soon. Comments welcome.
