I think you're in the right place here, as Aaron barely does anything
related to the releases. There have been several snapshots available
from http://build.archlinux.org/isos/ over the past 2 months. Among
other things, waiting for a new initscripts release blocked an official
release (Dieter kept telling me, and now I have to package another one
due to bugs), maybe there's more.

However, we definitely want to release something soon-ish, maybe we'll
get it done this month.
