Yes, that is the goal, but I want to have everything building and the PKGBUILD
sources in pristine shape before putting them in AUR. What I've learned over the
past two years is that TDE rarely builds on Arch for more than a couple of weeks
before Arch breaks it by pulling in the most recent upstream packages. Most
recently ffmpeg which broke k9copy that I still have not been able to fix. It's
doable, but I want to have a set of R14 tarballs to build against before AUR
packages are submitted. Currently when people have to build against the GIT
tree, that just overly complicates the build scripts and puts a hell of a load
on the GIT server.

It's much better to finish out the R14 development, get to the point we have
official release tarballs, then finalize the AUR src packages and then submit.
Even then, we will need a team to commit to helping fix packages that break due
to upstream changes...
