Aaron, would you make the announce of the Release Engineering Group and
the current status? So that users see: we are working, the next iso
release is near.
We could also say: only stopper ATM is FS#12867 (USB). But AFAIK that
bug must be not a total stopper for the ISOs, installation and
rescue/maintenance should be possible. Also we could apply your
mkinitcpio patch preventive.
(This is a bug in [core] and will affect to users only after
installation, but IMHO it don't belong to iso/installation process. We
could place a hint in ISO announce that **after** the installation new
users maybe could run in this bug  - as our "old users" do...)
