Hi devs,

I repaired the sourceball creation script the last days. I didn't
active the cron job yet as a couple of packages should be fixed first
(will send a new mail about that)

* Similar to the package pool there are now two subdirs for our
core/extra packages and the ones from community in ftp/sources.
* The sourceballs user has srcdest set to ~/sourceballs so we don't
need to redownload sources on every minor update
* A cron job removes files older than 120 days from that srcdest folder
* I have added a new rsync module to sigurd in order to provide these
sources for gerolde
* Instead of logging to files the plan is to send the output of the
scripts to the arch-notifications mailing list
