Just want to add a note here:

You can always recover the latest PKGBUILD of a deleted package at the 
PKGBUILD url (and the whole package at the tarball url). For example:


These URL are easy to remember (add the first two letters before the $pkgname 
url part, and then PKGBUILD or $pkgname.tar.gz), and won't be purged even 
after the package itself were removed from AUR.

This would be a better way to 'recover' things than looking on the AUR git 
archive :)
