Thanks for your heads-up. That was on my todo list but atm I am not really
able to catch up. But those patches are a lot more readable than those from
your working branch which virtually changed every line of code. I'll have a
closer look at those soon.

For now:
* Does this also work with the old layout/packages? (especially the
cleanup and move scripts)
* I still don't know how to handle the community and community-testing
repo. We cannot really put those packages into the same folder as
core,extra,testing. That could break the cleanup-scripts (different svn)
and definitely will break the rsync process from sigurd to gerolde.
* Do all packages have the $arch within their filename? (community might
be a problem here as they are not using db-scripts for that long)
