It can be recreated via a push, or via `ssh aur at aur.archlinux.org
restore pkgbase` (without needing a new commit).

Only TUs/Devs can force-push or (re)publish a blacklisted package (e.g.
something that already exists in the repos) but aside from that the same
logic applies everywhere in the backend AFAIK.
