The current running AUR has intermittent/selective issues with surfacing requests. I've gotten email notifications for quite a few requests that have *never* shown up in the TU requests dashboard. I've also filed a request myself that initially showed up in both my account dashboard and the TU request list, then disappeared for at least two days, and now shows up again where expected.

An example of a request that has never shown up at all in the web UI: 27112

The mailing list shows the message here:
And shows my "accepting" it by deleting the package here:
But at no time was this request visible to me in the requests dashboard. As it was part of a rash of requests from the same user it should have been pretty easy to spot too.

An example of a request filed by myself that disappeared for a while: 27018

The mailing list shows it here:

This initially showed in my user dashboard and the TU request list, then was gone from both for at least 48 hours, and is now back.

As the last possible related data point I have, IRC user swurl (AUR user sperg512) has reported in #archlinux-aur that their previously accepted/rejected request are missing from their user dashboard. I don't see any requests from them in the TU dashboard either going back into April.
This task depends upon

The third point here may be a red herring. It seems the last flag from sperg512 may indeed be Jan 8th. Those *are* showing in the TU dashboard and so there *may* be something like a 6 month limit on what shows in the AUR user dashboard (somebody more informed could chip in on that point). On the other hand the first two example issues are from this past week.
