Dear List,

As of yesterday night I can no longer `git push` anything to AUR. I have 
strong suspicions something changed with my account permissions. Even if 
the source URL is "git://" I get the same 403 message.

Below demonstrates the process I'm taking. I'm not sure what I'm doing 
wrong, but to me it would seem I suddenly somehow lost permissions to 
push anything to the AUR.

For what it's worth -- I was able to push to the AUR last week for a 
completely different package. I was hoping an AUR admin could take a 
look what may have suddenly happened to my account.
