Ok, Dan and I cracked this out, after struggling with the git svn
stuff for a bit.


Andy, could you try those scripts there and see if they suit your needs?

Sadly, this one is harder. The package URL is grabbed directly from
pacman, and pacman doesn't output the user:pass for that.

So, there's two things here:
a) You should be fine without specifying the user/pass for gerolde.
b) Could you log a pacman bug about username:passwords from URLs?
There's a potential security issue with outputting URLs like that so I
want to make sure we fully discuss it.

Thanks guys,
