Any reason /arch/db-* can't/shouldn't run checkpkg themselves, and
force you to say "/arch/db-extra --force" or something if you want to

something you run locally to check out your package, but errors are
not blockers to release of a package a lot of the time.  checkpkg's
errors are almost usually a blocker to release.  I think if it has an
error in checkpkg, just send an email to arch-dev, and add it to
[testing] until everything is caught up.

This slight change in workflow will greatly increase the "stability"
of releases that everyone has been talking about on the
