I know this, but this the repo, not the database. The database I mean,
is this one: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/

And such a database doesn't exist for community. So AUR is the only way
to find infos about community packages, to contact a maintainer, and to
flag a package out-of-date.

When adding a new task to Flyspray, I only see these repos in the
"Category" field:
Packages: Extra
Packages: Core
Packages: Testing

But there's no
Packages: Community

So the only way for filing bug reports for community packages is AUR.
