Yep, that's basically what I did--and the second time around it worked

What is confusing is why the repo versions of PKGBUILDs prevented a
commit.  I thought the repos subdirs were simply copies of the trunk,
allowing arch-specific commits if/when necessary. I assumed that by
changing something at the trunk-level, the repos would be automatically
updated (without the need to merge)--unless of course a local commit was 
specifically done in the repos directory.
