That sounds like a good idea actually.
IMHO the effort to streamline this further is a team effort.
A lot of work in the container direction has already been done by you,
which is great!

The arch-releng mailing list is not dead though. Contributions are
happening, but unfortunately there's noone to merge them after review
I didn't even know #arch-releng existed. Idling there now! :)
Also, I got an offlist offer for help from someone who has seemingly
been working towards build automation of sorts.

I guess someone needs to add my SSH key to the repo for things to
progress further.
