[aur-general] AUR repos and git subtrees

I have just attempted to update fanficfare{,-git} and I cannot push the
changes because they are a non-fast-forward.

I cannot be 100% sure because I don't have local clones, I have been
splitting off subtrees as needed (see my setup at
https://github.com/eli-schwartz/pkgbuilds) but this is supposed to be 100%
guaranteed to create the same sha1 hash. However, it appears that the AUR
repos are now out of sync. Same content and everything.

Am I supposed to believe that those packages -- and a bunch more (but not
all...) of mine -- had their repos randomly and sneakily rewritten??? Or
that git subtrees are simply unreliable???
Neither seems very likely.

This was working perfectly at least until July 20 (the last time I updated
