Merge branch 'pu': pre-v6.0.0

Release v6.0.0 - Python

This documents UX and functional changes for the v6.0.0 aurweb release.
Following this release, we'll be working on a few very nice features
noted at the end of this article in Upcoming Work.


This v6.0.0 release makes the long-awaited Python port official.

Along with the development of the python port, we have modified a
number of features. There have been some integral changes to how
package requests are dealt with, so _Trusted Users_ should read
the entirety of this document.


There are a few terms which I'd like to define to increase
understanding of these changes as they are listed:

- _self_
    - Refers to a user viewing or doing something regarding their own account
- _/pkgbase/{name}/{action}_
    - Refers to a POST action which can be triggered via the relevent package
      page at `/{pkgbase,packages}/{name}`.

Grouped changes explained in multiple items will always be prefixed with
the same letter surround...

### Coding Guidelines
1. All source modified or added within a patchset **must** maintain equivalent
or increased coverage by providing tests that use the functionality.
2. Please keep your source within an 80 column width.
Test patches that increase coverage in the codebase are always welcome.

For testing aurweb patches before submission, you can use the instructions in

Note that you can only do limited testing using the PHP built-in web server.
In particular, the cgit interface will be unusable as well as the ssh+git
interface. For a detailed description on how to setup a full aurweb server,

read the instructions below.
1) Clone the aurweb project:
1) Clone the aurweb project and install it (via `python-poetry`):
$ cd /srv/http/
$ git clone
$ cd /srv/http/
$ git clone git://
$ cd aurweb
$ poetry install
2) Setup a web server with PHP and MySQL. Configure the web server to redirect
all URLs to /index.php/foo/bar/. The following block can be used with nginx:
