I think this is a people-problem that cannot be solved like this.

This is going to repeat itself.

If you're looking to increase the mean quality of AUR PKGBUILDs,
the first thing that might have to be done is a change of policy.

I think that if "builds in a clean chroot" (+ a better page on how to)
was a rule for AUR submission, people would *automatically* take more care.
