It would be nice to have an official archive, some packages do not have
a maintainer but still work fine, and even if they break in the future
it is better to have a "broken" PKGBUILD to start with than have to
start from scratch.

Maybe the archive could be at aur3.archive.archlinux.org and have a big
warning that packages there are not maintained at all. As for what to
provide, I'd say use whatever requires less disk space. I suppose that a
way to go back in time to previous versions (as possible with
aur-mirror.git) is most probably not needed.
