Rather than cloning the whole AUR history (lots of unneeded disk space) I
suggest you use the following to pull the last version in the aur-mirror:

wget -e robots=off --reject "index.html" -np -r -nH --cut-dirs 3

robots=off because otherwise recursive download fails, don't download the
index page, just the files it links to, and cull the extra folders in the
path to the packagedir.
