Currently if one enables the 'notify' button in the AUR, emails come when someone posts a comment, but not if the maintainer pushes an update. Is it possible to get emails when the package is updated?

I envision an e-mail notification preference area on a user's account page being used for something like this. A user could use it to specify their preferences for what types of notifications to receive if they add a package to their notify list. It would allow for more fine-grained control over notifications. It could include control over notifications for things like:
- New comments
- Package updates
- Ownership changes (adopting/orphaning)
- Trusted User changes (merging/deletion)

Update now the archlinux, and the package broadcom-wl not found more.

It might be useful to generally define some action hooks to ease the implementation of any kind of action. This might refer to, for example, a new comment or a package update or anything else that happens by user actions or system actions (cronjobs or what-so-ever).

I've added another suggestion for subscription notification mechanism, and I think, it's quite related to this task: #42239
