One thing to note: I decided to kill off the staging/*64 dirs - we
have the arch in the package name, there is no reason we need
different dirs. The current scripts take care of this by copying
${repo}64 to ${repo} before doing anything, and there is a change in
devtools to upload to only one staging dir. We just need to make a new
devtools release.
