[aur-general] Build packages without Arch on pkgbuild.com

I've recently written a paragraph on how to build Arch Linux packages on
pkgbuild.com (a.k.a. soyuz):


To perform the complete operation on soyuz, we need to forward the
gpg-socket (and the SSH socket if different) to soyuz, which defeats the PGP
/ Web of Trust security model: for a person with root access to soyuz,
the private key is only one passphrase away.


As I understand it for now, the full-PGP way to package on soyuz is to
only run extra-x86_64-build there.

All other operations can be run locally.  The only area where I'm left
in the dark is the "archrelease" step of "communitypkg": what's the
equivalent on a foreign distribution?
