OK, as far as I know, everything is complete. CVS is still there, but
is useless.

Please read this:

I tested with some random package and am able to commit. I did not
test the dbscripts, but those should be working...

You will all need to "mkdir -p ~/staging/community/" on sigurd.

A devtools release is needed, so communitypkg works the same as the
rest. If someone would like to submit a patch to remove all the
community specific stuff, and vary the hostname based on repo
(archlinux.org / aur.archlinux.org), that'd be awesome. Or maybe Dan
did this already....?

For now you can just scp the package to
aur.archlinux.org:staging/community and manually commit the files to
svn. You will also need to run "archrelease community-i686" or
"archrelease community-x86_64" before the dbscripts will allow you to
add a new package.

Tomorrow I will update devtools, and setup cleanup cron jobs to be run
on that machine. I'll also sync svn to gerolde for the repo browser,
if you guys want.

Loui, do you need to do anything with the AUR now?

Again: Please do not use CVS anymore. It will do nothing. I have
killed the tupkg daemons so using CVS won't work anymore.
