Lets not...

My main thinking in the past was to unify the tools used for the 
"official" and community repos.  That either involved fixing the 
community/AUR integration to use the new official devtools or split 
community and the AUR completely.   If we split them, then we (being 
devs and TUs) need to decide whether the community packages get shown on 
the main Arch package page or are kept separate.  As Callan put it, a 
big change with lots of planning needed...
