Actually, the AUR is relatively good at moving packages from unsupported
to community. If a new package appears in CVS, it checks to see if it
was already in unsupported, if it was, it preserves data such as package
ID, and number of Votes, while clearing fields like the maintainer, and
updating the repo location to communty. 
However, the other direction, that is community to unsupported,
currently destroys package data in the database.
