But if someone missed the deadline (something that I'm sure will happend
for a few hundeds at least either because lazines, bussyness or not want
(or can't) reach aur-dev page) there are a place to take the PKGBUILD that
was deleted in the "lets break AUR" cleanup?

Also translations need to be pulled, the last time the translation weren't
taken from transfex (as I can noticed) and viceversa, so why not let the
submit button there but intead add the instructions on how now upload
packages to aur.
