I'm getting lost as to what the point here.  We can still advise users 
about their packages on the AUR.  They just can not advise us on our 
[community] packages without making a bug report.  I like that because 
whenever a user makes a comment on the AUR page that I have to deal 
with, it requires me to bookmark the page or else it will be forgotten.  
The bug tracker has a nice feature where I can list all bugs assigned to 
me, so feature requests/bug reports files there never get lost.
