I second your proposition.
In case we want to work on IRC for the CU day as proposed earlier
(which I think is a good idea), I wrote a IRC bot. Just say ":d
pkgname" (I use vim...) and it will download it for backup, then make
a report. I'll make an archive of the result packages at the end.
Running for now on #archlinux-cleanup at freenode,
