[aur-general] Keeping community64 up to date

I have come to realize that the current way of keeping community64 in
sync could use some improving. I realized this when looking at the
pkg_diff web page  thinking I would build some packages. After being
distracted by the internet for a few minutes... I reloaded the page and
noticed that some of the packages had been uploaded. Now had I actually
built those packages, it would have been a waste of time. Also, I'm
never sure how much time to wait and see whether the TU who uploaded the
i686 package is going to upload the x86_64 package.
How can this be improved? The best I can come up with is making a wiki
page with a list of x86_64 build requests. TU's who upload a i686
package and are not going to build the x86_64 package themselves would
need to add the package to the page. Think of it as punishment for not
building it yourself. :) When someone else goes to build the package
they either remove it from the list or tag that it is being built.
That probably isn't the best idea, but I feel that the current system is
a bit flawed. Any other suggestions/comments?
