It would be nice to see which packages get promoted from AUR to community or core/extra, or even the new packages in the distro. I think it would be something interesting to have because promoted packages are probably new good software that would be interesting to hear about.

This could simply be implemented as a "new" icon next to new packages in the "recently updated packages" box, similarly to what the AUR home page has.

Relevant forum discussion:

What's the status of this issue? Does it even occur frequently enough that packages get promoted to other repositories?

It doesn't happen all that often, so this is not too high on the priority list.

This is exactly why I think this is interesting. It would be a great way to discover new good software.

Adding the backend stuff for this now so we can eventually show this info on the website.

And what about the opposed?
PAckages from community/core/extra dropped to AUR.

Not all users look wekly the AUR webpae and clic the "new in 7 days" so the inverse could help to those that are tracking packages that are droped from official (or dropped entirelly is happend [and happend one or 2 times in 2014 if mailisting and aur-search--web-engine is right])

Question, this bug should not be on "AUR we interface" bugtracker section instead of this secction of the bugtracker?
