[aur-general] saving AUR history (Re: TU Application: Thore Bödecker)

Some small additions:

As Eli mentioned, nothing is deleted.
The read-only git access for amavisd-new can be found here:
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/amavisd-new.git

Also, these deleted AUR packages can be restored through SSH, i.e.:
ssh aur at aur.archlinux.org restore <name>
which will reverse the deletion, preserving the git history.
