[arch-dev-public] proposal to add "aurpublish" to community

Hi, so for a while now I've been using a tool I wrote at
https://github.com/eli-schwartz/aurpublish -- recently split out from a
vendored script in https://github.com/eli-schwartz/pkgbuilds -- to
maintain my AUR packages. Some of you will probably have heard about it
before. :)

I certainly think it's a nifty tool :D and apparently a number of other
people do too. It makes things faster and simpler, and especially
prevents people from accidentally uploading PKGBUILDs with out of date
.SRCINFO which is obviously a huge plus...

I would like to add this to [community], but I'm unsure what people
think about this; specifically, whether this might come too close to
"supporting the AUR via [community] packages". Note that this is *not*
an AUR helper and is strictly a tool for package *maintainers* to use
during the process of uploading.

What do you all think?
