Never heard of this accident. New TUs should always clear things up
before jumping in. One or two mistakes are fine.

Is the packaging workflow not clear enough from the guidelines? Two
distinct steps for PKGBUILDs and binaries respectively:

* SVN (commit) for buildscripts
** SVN (archrelease) to "finalise"

* SSH (scp) for packages
** SSH (db-update) to "distribute"

Now, if you accidentally make the addition after a build, and then
commit, you have to change your habit. Make the addition, then do the
build, then commit (using devtools).
