Details

GET requests fail with HTTP 414 errors with a large amount of requests, for example when querying many packages for AUR updates [1], or resolving large dependency chains [2]. An existing workaround is to split requests, but besides the added means needed to split and merge requests, the resulting JSON is more difficult to parse.
