I proposed this patch more than 2 weeks ago. It's essential to achieve automatic install (look at my post about Trapezium).
I don't known how it is suppose to work: who is in charge to accept patches to archiso ? Is there any problem with this patch ?
Aaron is the maintainer, but he is inactive. Gerhard is inactive. Since I'm the only other releng person, some people expect me to do it, even though I don't like being involved in archiso and I already spend a lot of time on all other releng tasks (aif, image building, image testing, releasing, ...) Gerardo knows archiso and has commit access to it, but he also has little time and he never made any commitment to us in any way (he is just a community member). Thomas (and a few other devs) know archiso and has commit access, but he also has more then enough Arch stuff on his plate.
We should probably have put a position for archiso maintainer on http://www.archlinux.org/news/contributors-wanted/
Anyway, if you complain enough on this list, someone will eventually step up and do it.
In the meanwhile, I'll bring up the issue internally.
