I've been planning on redoing this backend for a LONG time. It needs
to a) switch to svn, b) use the new DB scripts, c) use some version of
reporead.py to parse DB files, d) lots more

Currently, the community backend is all part of the AUR git repo. I'd
like to get this split out into its own repo, and maybe start hacking
at it in the near future.

If anyone is willing to help, splitting it out from the AUR, and
getting all the scripts we use on gerolde together would be a great
