The transition from AUR3 to AUR4 has to be made by the maintainer,
there is no automated update process which will transfer packages.
Therefore orphaned packages will be removed in the transition. Think of

You as a maintainer have until August 1st to upload your packages to
AUR4 otherwise everyone may take over what you once
