* Moving comment notifications sounds like a good idea.
* Not sure about the automatic comment on package deletion. Sending
notifications on various events is a controversial issue, although I
personally think that it might make sense here. I usually always add a
comment before deleting a package to make sure users on the
notification list are aware of the package being removed.
* This should be discussed on aur-dev, not on aur-general.
