I deleted my AUR account since I don't use Arch much nowadays and you provide the possibility to remove my account. I assumed the packages I owned would be orphaned as a result, but instead they have disappeared from the web interface. However, the Git repositories for the packages still seem to exist (I can fetch all commits from remote).
This task depends upon

My AUR username was rudolf and the packages I owned were: freedink, freedink-data, freedink-dfarc, jugglinglab, hexen2 and vimchant.

Deleting a user account should indeed orphan (and not delete) any package bases owned by the removed user.

Could you please list the packages affected by this so we can investigate?

That's funny.. I answered just before you asked :-). See my previous comment for a list of packages.

I confirm.

I am puzzled. We explicitly orphan package bases before deleting a user account, see [1]. So even if propagation constraints are broken on our live setup, everything should still work as expected (i.e. orphan maintained packages instead of removal).

To reproduce the problem, you must be the first owner of the package.
