Indeed, a there are two blacklists, one that blacklists repo packages, so
they are not uploaded to the AUR. That one is updated automatically.

There's a second blacklist, but that one has no way to update, other than
through the DB, hence my confusion.

I think we should probably start adding a few packages to that list.
