I agree 100% with everything you said. The current tested and released (by me)
PKGBUILD tarballs are all here:

12:23 nirvana:/srv/http/dl/dt/trinity/arch> ls -1 src

The 3111skyline box is just a server sitting about 20 feet behind me in my
office. I just stuck them there because I didn't have anywhere else to put them
and there small and can be handled by my limited upstream inet connection. I'm
more than happy to put them where ever they need to be, I just have to know
where to put them and have access to where ever that is so I can upload them.

Currently, all you need is those files and the build script
and (after you edit or specify the paths you want in the script or on the CLI)
it will build Trinity on Arch 'start-to-finish' :)

script is here:

I'll write the help section for the script later tonight so

' -h' gives usage info.

Just tell me where you want them and tell me how to access the server and I'll
upload them after lunch. Or, you can just copy them from my server. I'd just
feel more comfortable having write access to where ever they are hosted so I can
provide updates or fix my bugs when I find them ;-)
