I maintain a few PKGBUILDs on AUR, including one that has a considerable
amount of votes [1]. It would be awesome to have any package that I maintain
moved to [community], it doesn't matter if the TU asked me or not, but this
is a personal opinion. Nevertheless, it is certainly polite to write a
comment notifying that the TU is going to move the package, not to mention
useful, since (I assume that) many people that use a given package would
also be notified by e-mail that the package is being moved.

Just for the record, I agree that it should be put in the guidelines. I
think that the main argument in favor of it is that it is not only polite
but convenient for those who want to keep track of the packages one is
