I agree with all this. I have been using the devtools for a while now.
Not only I use a clean chroot build, but I have developed a testing
procedure where I test the packages on both VM's and on bare metal machines,
before pushing them to the AUR. Not only that, but I invest some effort
into making sure I got the right upstream sources. I have a multi ISP/VPN/TOR
download tool that I plan on polishing and releasing that automates in part
the retrieval of the sources (also making sure you have the right one).

This experience, even if I don't get in, has been much fruitful. I will
continue helping either way, whenever I can.
