FYI, there is a major libtiff and a minor xine-lib  rebuild in the
pipeline.  They'll happen when the current db and libarchive rebuild
will be done or maybe earlier if they don't overlap with each other.

There is also an upcoming bash-completion rebuild (the completions
will be moved from /etc to /usr/share) but I'm waiting for pacman 4 to
leave testing for that. I'm not really sure why it's still in

There's the possibility of several unsigned packages ending up on
these todo list so it might be worth while to wait after these
rebuilds before doing any package signing rebuild.
