When returning to the page that was displayed after package submission (e.g., to read an error message), one is confronted with a dialog about resending a POST form to the server. This can be circumvented by using the POST-Redirect-GET pattern when displaying package submission results. E.g., you can save a message in a session variable and output that one at the GET stage.

The same is true for posting comments.

The AUR doesn't currently utilize $_SESSION, so that would have to be added before this could even be implemented.

You can also use a GET parameter, e.g.


where 1 is for instance "package upload succesful" (in any language).

For comments, this should be even more easy to implement, because the new comment will have been added to the comment list.
