berliOS will be closed : what impact on Archlinux?

I learned today that BerliOS will be closed at the end of the year, after 10 years of loyal service. Nearly 4700 projects were launched by this site, including many free open source games. Among his games there was PlanetPenguin Racer Lincity-NG, netpanzer Battle of Antargis, SuperTux, SuperTuxKart, Warzone 2100, Oolite, some of its games are already hosted elsewhere, but some that are no longer maintained, may disappear from the world of free software.

I wonder what impact on Archlinux packages and AUR ?

I tried to launch an advanced search, but I can not specifically looking for the url of a package. Any ideas ?
