If you have a lot of packages and want to simplify your work a bit, then
you could use a tool I've written to create some of my repositories:


You can manage your PKGBUILD structure in whatever way you like in a GIT
repo (or locally but I prefer to have them on GIT):


The repo-make controlling is done with just one file in this repo:


The whole list is then auto-built without any user interaction and
results in a working repository. This means also that dependencies are
auto-installed to the system repo-make runs on, so you absolutely should
have a dedicated virtual machine for this.

For vdr4arch we have a build server which uses repo-make in an Arch
docker container. It autobuilds the packages whenever something on the
GIT server changes.
