Hey, I'm gonna throw my hat in the ring here.

It is my opinion that it is impossible to maintain this many packages
with the proper quality that we try to strive for with Arch. At the
very LEAST, with 600 packages and 2 architectures, that is 1200 built
units. What happens if we add another architecture? You are building
these packages for both architectures, yes?

Additionally, we just adopted a policy to decide what packages go into
[extra] for fear of useless cruft being thrown in there. I highly
suggest you TUs do the same to prevent things like this. There's not
an issue with 600 WORTHWHILE packages, but when so many of them are
near useless for our userbase, then it's just silly to provide binary
packages for 4 people.

Either way, this is just my opinion. What do I know, right?
