The original thread is too cluttered already so I decided to submit the
second version in a separate thread. The only real change is that we
decided to not make aur.archlinux.org a read-only archive such that
users still get updates during the transition period (if AUR package
maintainers decide to update both aur.archlinux.org and

    This is an automated email to all AUR package maintainers.
    Starting from June 8th, 2015, the Arch User Repository is being migrated
    to a Git-based platform. If you want to continue maintaining your AUR
    packages, please submit them to aur4.archlinux.org before July 8th,
    2015. We reserved all packages you are currently maintaining on
    aur.archlinux.org, such that nobody else can overwrite them. However, if
    you choose not to resubmit your package, we will cancel that reservation
    on July 8th. As of July 8th, you can submit packages that were not taken
    care of by their maintainers. On August 8th, the archive at
    aur.archlinux.org will be replaced by aur4.archlinux.org and the former
    aur.archlinux.org source tarballs will be made available for reference.
    Keep in mind to submit any package updates made between June 8th and
    August 8th to aur4.archlinux.org. Anything submitted to
    aur.archlinux.org during that period of time will be lost.
    For instructions on the new package submission process, please consult
    the Arch wiki [1]. If you encounter any bugs, please report them to the
    aurweb bug tracker [2].
    Happy packaging!
