After all, I am not sure whether we should create an official archive
hosted on aur.archlinux.org or just refer to an "inofficial" archive
like aur-mirror.git. As Doug already mentioned, I am currently on
vacation. I will have to think of that (and possibly implement an
archive) when I am back home. Meanwhile, other opinions are welcome.

If you plan to redirect broken Arch Wiki links to the archive, please
make sure that it is obvious that these packages are abandoned. They are
likely to break or be out-of-date for months.
