Or, what would be even better, is to fix up the [community] repo
back-end so it deals with packages with the repo name in them. Then we
wouldn't need different ports for uploading for each arch and could just
use "CARCH=x86_64 commuitypkg". Much bigger job though and I do not
know where the code is...
Also, if we have someone actively hacking the [community] back-end, then
we could organize the switch to SVN like the main repos and it would be
easy to create a [community-testing] repo to solve all the rebuild
issues when big changes are in [testing]
