Hi all,

We need a news item for the klibc move to [core] due to the whole "349 
lines of file conflict messages" thing...


klibc upgrade requires user intervention

Due to a limitation in how pacman handles conflict checking and symlinks 
to directories, the upgrade to klibc-1.5.14-1 requires the manual 
removal of a symlink prior to updating.  Please do a "rm 
/usr/lib/klibc/include/asm" to remove the symlink that causes lots of 
false file conflicts.


Sounds fine?
