Hi TUs and DEVs,

I just packaged a new set of devtools today. I'll put it into testing first; 
so please give it a try and let me know if there are any problems. And of 
course I'd appreciate if you could also drop a line if everything works as 

A warning for those who use makechrootpkg: the rw and union subdirs are no 
longer used and cannot be used with the new tools. Aufs is no longer needed.

For details see http://projects.archlinux.org/devtools.git/log/

The most noticeable changes are:

      Use the host's SRCDEST and PKGDEST if defined
      Reset umask before touching the chroot.
      make sure all files are owned by nobody before building
      Move build and package logs to WORKDIR, otherwise it is lost
      Create a working copy instead of using an union layer
      Read pacman cache dir from pacman.conf or cli
      Reduce verbosity to a sane minimum
      simplify and optimize upload process
      Replace expensive merge with delete and copy
      Add missing -n option to getopt list for mkarchroot
      abort if not all local source files are under version control
