Thus i don't think we need a hold-off period like this, Allan.
We still need a hold-off period, we're just waiting to make sure people have libarchive v3.3.3 instead of pacman v5.2.0.
libarchive was released around 7th of September into the repos, so that is at least a shorter timeframe when waiting next pacman release + a full year.
Wouldn't it be feasible to issue an Announcement early July and do the transition in September?
