As far as I remember, it was discussed that the old packages from AUR3 will
still be available in an archive. Is it the aur-mirror.git [4] or something
else? We were thinking to replace the currently broken links to AUR packages on
the wiki with links to the archive to divide the heap of broken links into
"obsolete" and "obsolete, but still findable" parts. For this to work, we need a
fixed URL with variable part corresponding to the package name. And for easy
maintenance with a bot, we would need a list of packages in the archive for fast
searching, e.g. something like [5]. Is this possible or do you have some other
