As some of you have noticed, I moved all the stuff we do in the -ARCH 
kernel into a separate patch to make the PKGBUILD slimmer. Now I finally 
set up a generation script for the patch (which is in an early state, 
doesn't do much error handling, but works) which will probably grow and 
become more sophisticated over time.

I set the script and the patches up in

However, I need someone with root to run

groupadd linux-2.6-ARCH-git (is that even a valid group name?)
chown -R thomas:linux-2.6-ARCH-git path/to/repo

I did the rest of the steps listed in repo-setup.txt, so after that the 
repository should be fine.

I will start preparing 2.6.25 soon (maybe even today), but I want to 
clean up the patch. If anybody has opinions about any of the patches 
currently included, please post them here. You can go through the 
PATCHCFG file in the repository and comment on the ones you like or dislike.
