I thought the signing stuff is getting close now?
I would just do one new release that brings all archiso improvements along with a few aif fixes and the signing stuff.
as for what's on the plate for AIF, check out:
esp. the things labeled critical and high should be taken care of.

also, what needs to be first? pacman4/signing stuff in core, or new release? i thought we needed an archiso release with the signing stuff enabled before we could move pacman4/signing stuff to core.  but i'm not sure why.
