Okay, thanks.

Btw Thomas, all I'm saying is I think it makes more sense to have either:
A) a "stable" build env (like we have now) + building very early prototypes (i.e. using very bleeding edge mkinitcpio stuff) on your own pc
B) a "stable" build env + a new build env using mkinitcpio from git.

You don't like those solutions? If not, why?
