Hm well, nothing critical, but I thought there were several things that
needed to be taken care of before the release, and not much happened during
these last two weeks (sorry, I didn't have much time).

1) not important, easy to fix:

* -Ru patch from Nagy is ready for quite a while, and it doesn't change any
existing behavior, it just adds a new feature (however, it adds a new message
to be translated) -> my unneeded branch

2) more important, easy to fix:

* testdb is broken
I fixed this on my testdb branch, and also added conflicts checking. nothing

* one memleak from Nathan was apparently ignored :
and also, a little and good patch for ignorepkg :

both pushed to my working branch

3) important, hard to fix:

* the backup handling is in a poor situation :

(with 3.1 , reinstalling filesystem makes the .pacnew appear though)

* another weird issue with directory symlinks

these two areas are my favorites (read: this really pisses me off).
