Changing the subject and ML to make this more visible

Please take a look at the packages that fail in /var/log/sourceballs
If any of your packages are there, please fix them so that "makepkg
--allsource" works.

Additionally, please check
ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/sources/errors.txt [1]
for additional failures

1: This output sucks. I've committed a fix for it, but it's not released
