[arch-projects] [ABS] [PATCH v3 0/7] vcs prototype cleanups and some git-specific changes

Hello all,

So this is the third iteration of my initial patch series. Sorry about the
weird, non-uniform mailings before (I learned about git send-email today).

The biggest change from the earlier series is that for the git prototype, I
actually threw out the temporary build directory altogether. Jesse Young's
suggestion of just using the SCM builtins to get a pristine working directory
started making more sense to me as I thought about the problem. My initial
resistance to the idea doesn't make sense --- sorry Jesse! Unfortunately, I am
really only familiar with git, so I couldn't make a uniform change across all
VCS prototypes.

I also used rsync to efficiently copy the temporary directory for cvs/svn
prototypes (instead of doing a "cp -r" followed with a find command for
recursive deletion of unwanted directories).

The other notable change is that I dropped the idea of deleting the temporary
build directories inside package() altogether (PATCH v2 1/7), as Lukas
Fleischer suggested.
