In my opinion, the requested changes for AUR reported here are done very quickly,
isn't it? And no special rights for AUR are needed to check the
submitted packages. I see a lot of complexity, but I'm not sure for what added values.
What should be the tasks for the AUR moderators? I can think of:
- check submitted/changed PKGBUILDs (no special rights needed)
- orphan/remove packages            (IMO done quickly by TU's)
- manage AUR accounts               (same as above ...)
- ?
