git clone git://projects.archlinux.org/abs.git abs

Anyone want to take this on? It really isn't a high maintenance thing.
It has been split into its own repository now, and anyone can take it
and run with Eliott's idea (which I'll give a +1). It really shouldn't
be too much of a burden on anyone, and you get that awesome feeling of
leading a project (even if it is small!). I'm willing to help out, but
my "full-time" duties will always tend to be with pacman so this might
not get as much love from me as someone else could give it.
