[aur-general] [community] repository cleanup

As already mentioned, many of these packages haven't been updated
upstream in a long time, and I doubt many of them will.

For example:
Name: polymer
Upstream: http://static.int.pl/~mig21/dev/releases/polymer/
Description: "QT3 port of Plastik"
Last news update: "14.05.2005"

Really? 2005 and QT3?

Moral of the story: just adopt them. Chances are you will never have
to do any work with them (excluding the ones that *actually* do get
upstream changes), and it makes the repo look/function in a whole lot
cleaner manner.
