Most mailing-lists use a Reply-To: header to make sure mailing clients
reply to the mailing-list rather than to the author by default, is
there a misconfiguration somewhere ?

I don't think there is such thing as "ABS-related tools", unless you
are more specific. I can only share my knowledge of how we are
organised for official repos (core/extra...).

Our layout, as I may have explained in an older thread, is rather

* advgame
* - trunk
* - repo
* berp
* - trunk
* - repo

The idea being than work-in-progress is kept is trunk, and repo is a
snapshot of PKGBUILDs which are building correctly. I think your
layout is okay too. Do you know if binary packages can be hosted
somewhere ? My idea is that if a package can be built successfully,
some script would be able to upload this binary package to a FTP
server, as well a backuping the PKGBUILD from the "aur" area to the
"bin" area so that PKGBUILDs there match the binary packages.

The "bin" area is the "ABS" tree, while the "aur" area is the "AUR" tree.
