I personally think that archlinux itself has too many dependencies.
I'd like to have three packages
- archlinux: a set of libraries needed for cabal2arch and managing the repos
- cabal2arch: cabal2arch + basic scripts to find upstream updates and
do database-like operations
- archlinux-report: library+programs used to upload to AUR, interact
with website, update web pages etc.
