After a few tests with a local repo I guess I am ready to submit my changes. 
So, here is the plan:

1) Add me to the dbscripts-git group and let me push my patch to the repo
2) Checkout the scripts into /arch or /arch-new (to be discussed)
3) Check which packages need to be kept in gz format for a while.(is it just 
   pacman, libarchive and xz-utils) and add PKGEXT='.pkg.tar.gz' into their 
4) Start packaging xz compressed packages
5) Should we ask everyone to set PKGEXT to .pkg.tar.xz in makepkg.conf and 
   probably ship it as default?
6) Apply the same changes on sigurd (community server)
