Finally! Huge thanks for stepping into this! :-)

I would prefer to keep history, but if there's no (easy enought) way to do this
- I'm fine without history, especially when CVS archive is kept for some time
(BTW, this is a good example where ChangeLog file with important changes
comes handy, especially for important packages).

What I'm concerned about is the status of community.
Scripts seem to be pretty old (don't understand -arch suffix yet).
If our AUR heros can move this to SVN in pretty short time (few days?)
- that would be awesome.
I can help with aurtools/devtools modification/testing
and changing guidelines for TUs.
