I don't think the old package submission form will be supported any
longer. All that package maintainers need to know is how to use
git-add(1), git-commit(1) and git-push(1). Since package maintainers
should have some very basic knowledge on VCS anyway, I don't think we
expect too much here.

Also, note that dropping all the tarball handling code allows us for
cleaning up the AUR a lot.
