At first: I disabled the Serverpart until I have done some chagnes. (I just
thought it would be cool to not only track official packages but all; this
could be helpfull to see what is popular in AUR). I'll send an mail when it
finally can be used.
I save the following:
* The users arch, ip and time of submission
* I count every package per arch

better are the results.
