Hi, thanks for the suggestion! It has been discussed before, but we
probably didn't document our conclusions properly.

* AUR is huge and as a community effort, it's awesome
* Many PKGBUILDs are mislicensed so automatic conversion to PUR would be
  a PITA

So, we did this: actual per-project and/otr user repositories, so
there're [social], [artistic], [~fauno], [~mtjm] repos now. If you
browse the packages on the web site you'll see there're several repos.
