This is for the repos. But what's about the AUR packages?

For AUR you should also keep in mind, that some/most people are
registered with their nicknames only, but - at least in my case - use
their real names and a different e-mail address in their Maintainer

In such cases, the field for the real name would need to be filled out
in the AUR account.
