[pacman-dev] TODO update

The following items can be considered as closed:
 remove exit calls from libalpm
 pacman -Sw (I've added a NOCONFLICTS flag to transactions to bypass
conflicts in case of a download only operation)
For information, I'm still working on item . I've added and committed
a few more debug messages regarding conflicts handling. Some logs about
file conflicts are still missing.
Here is the updated TODO:
 possible db corruption because of pmsyncpkg_t struct:
the spkg field is just a pointer to data from the cache, which is likely
to change during sync_commit
 database cleanup
b) do not add name and version entries in "desc" file (already available
in the directory name), and also for .PKGINFO file (in makepkg)?
=> on hold for now
 more debug messages in libalpm
some parts of the code still remain obscure (file conflicts handling for
instance) even when running pacman with "--debug=-1"
 .lastupdate review
Is the .lastupdate file really needed? Using mtime isn't enough?
 review file conflict code
