News draft


All files in the /lib directory have been moved to /usr/lib and now /lib
is a symlink to usr/lib.  During this update, pacman will identify a
conflict in the /lib directory.  In the simplest case, this is worked
around by doing

pacman -Syu --ignore glibc
pacman -Su

If either of this steps gives issues (e.g. dependency version issues,
file conflicts in /lib), refer to this
[guide](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:usrlib) for
more detailed instructions on performing this upgrade.


I will post this soon and move the packages about a day later.
