Yes, most users didn't noticed. And probably won't. But, I believe that
a fair share of users was aware of the migration, given the feedback I
received on my own packages during the transition. I'd say about 30-35%.
Perhaps the admins of the site can get some of the statistics of their
analytics and shed some light on this.

There are some ones, with patches and all sort of changes, that are
harder to write. In those cases it helps to have the PKGBUILD (and
patches) at hand. Again, I'm not against them being somewhere, perhaps
an all in one github repo.
