Thanks everyone for your efforts in testing and experimenting with the
grub stuff.

I went over all mails and tickets, and afaict we only have 4 more open
remaining issues, for all of which we only need someone with access
to apply the fixes / some testing.

See the roadmap @ 

FS#13070: we have a fix but need a developer who can update
archlinux-installer (and it's package) for us
FS#13068: we have to wait until grub-gfx package is updated for 64bit
FS#13049: should be okay for 64bit users. if you have such system, keep
your eyes open during cdrom boot and confirm it's okay now please.
FS#12896: need confirmation from usb users that it's okay.

I personally have a slow upload.. maybe some else can upload his
homebuilt isos (or we can wait a bit for Aaron to surface again, but
that will be more then 24 hours from now I think)

Anyway, here is the build procedure, it's quite easy:

   git clone http://projects.archlinux.org/git/archiso.git

   cd archiso/archiso
   sudo make install #to be packaged later

   cd ../configs/install-iso
   # change version in Makefile
   # if on x86_64, remove intel-536ep and intel-537 from packages.list

   scp release/* ...somewhere...
