Hi all,

This fixes a couple of items that have been nagging at me, the largest of which
being that we parse environment files such as /etc/locale.conf. This is pretty bad,
imo, and we shouldn't be doing it. Benefits of not doing it are laid out in the patch
that implements it.

Tom, I'm not sure when you planned on doing a release, but hopefully some of these
are small enough that you won't mind merging them.


Dave Reisner (7):
  avoid unnecessary escaping of newlines
  fix non-uniform indentation
  functions: remove redundant 'return $?'
  functions: properly quote ${mounts[@]}
  functions: declare locale vars in an array for reuse
  functions: implement a environment file parser
  PKGBUILD: use %Y%m%d format instead of %s
