Hello all,

After some code-shuffling without rewriting everything (something I
don't have the time for), netcfg is in a new and exiting state that
needs testing. I would like to just push 2.8.6 rc1 to [testing] for
this, but Florian noted that we normally don't put release candidates
in [testing]. Is this the case for arch-projects too? In that case,
can people please test the new netcfg?
There are two ways of installing:

= Bleeding edge:
git clone git://projects.archlinux.org/netcfg.git
cd netcfg
make install

= 2.8.6 rc1
git clone git://projects.archlinux.org/netcfg.git
cd netcfg
git checkout tags/2.8.6rc1
make pkgbuild
mv PKGBUILD netcfg-2.8.6rc1.tar.xz /tmp
cd /tmp
pacman -U netcfg-2.8.6rc1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
(the last step as root)
