I have adopted some packages, created a few more, but I think that this 
migration should serve the purpose of cleansing the database. We already 
have orphans on aur4 and that is unacceptable. Migrate a package and 
then orphan it is not ideal and we will end up having the same number of 
orphans as we already have.
