AUR/AUR helpers: downgrade behaviour?

I had downgraded a package, then tried the current version again.  However, my AUR helper (yay, because go) apparently didn't preserve the most recently installed (downgraded) version, so now I can't re-downgrade.  Is this a system issue or a yay issue?  Are there ways around it?  To be clear, I think it deleted the installed package from the cache because it wasn't the most recent and an upgrade happened.

Re: AUR/AUR helpers: downgrade behaviour?

It's a user issue. It's up to you to preserve the built packages if you want to keep them around for potential downgrades.

Or, you could just edit the PKGBUILD to build the older version (assuming it still compiles against any updated system libs).

Also, this belongs in the AUR subforum, it is not an Arch discussion.

Did you check the yay cache in ~/.cache/yay/ ?
