A bit off-topic: You don't have to use ABS if you don't need a complete

For a single package:

svn co svn://svn.archlinux.org/packages/$pkgname/trunk
svn co svn://svn.archlinux.org/packages/$pkgname/repos/testing-i686
or similar. Replace 'packages' with 'community' for community and
multilib packages.
This gives direct access to the subversion tree, so it is instant on
updates. However, if people start trying to checkout the complete tree,
we will shut it down, as subversion is incredibly inefficient.

You can also pull the git tree (see [1]), which is updated every two
hours, if you need the complete tree.
