I would like to help out but I'll be away for the week-end. I could
remove/move some packages on Monday if there's still some cleanup to do.

PKGBUILD and their accompaning files should be submitted to unsupported
in a tarred directory named after the package. So the above should be:
== Move to unsupported ==
tar czf pkgname.tar.gz pkgname/PKGBUILD pkgname/any_other_files_to_be_included
/upload to the AUR/
cvs tag -d CURRENT
cvs tag -d CURRENT-64
(possibly testing as well if it's there)
cvs rm -f *
The second line could be simplified to:
tar czf pkgname.tar.gz pkgname/*
but that would include the CVS directory. It's probably better not to have
that in the AUR submission tarball.
