Since you're at it, why don't you make the "git push" part a bit
clearer, since many of us are unfamiliar with git? Ie, you could put
the steps like that:
1. Create a new (empty) package base foobar, run the following command:
$ ssh aur-dev.archlinux.org setup-repo foobar
2. Clone the (initially empty) package repository via SSH:
$ git clone ssh+git://aur-dev.archlinux.org/foobar.git/
3. Change into the directory:
$ cd foobar/
3. Copy the relevant files from previous AUR folder:
$ cp ~/AUR/coolvlviewer/* ./
4. mksrcinfo from the package blah-blah
$ mksrcinfo
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "Initial commit"
(or whatnot)
7. Push:
$ git push -u origin master
