I really don't see why you'd want to share it over bit torrent to be honest.

Ah, that makes sense, especially with trying to make it secure. Once a PKGBUILD updated, it would have to be updated on several instances before it would be considered valid. The idea of mirroring based on git sounds interesting though.
