Right everything does start in the AUR, but if a package is moving from the
AUR into community, it is probably a noteworthy package, and a noteworthy
event - and I want to hear about it.

Also, when there is a major update to a package, I would love to hear about

Maintaining a radar on the vast array of open source software packages is
hard, but this strikes me as one of the best ways for us to be given simple
news, presented by the people packaging the software.

This would also make a great place for the packager to let the rest of the
community know about their latest packages, and why they bothered to package
them at all.
