[aur-general] AUR Best Practice for New Package Upload

Since 'any' is the architecture of the package, why isn't there a
folder called 'any' in the repo? I can see only 'i686' and 'x86_64' in
repo 'core', 'extra' and 'community', and all of the
'any'-architecture packages are put into both 'i686' and 'x86_64'

Hope for your reply!
