New (and hopefully final) RC:

There's a bunch of changes here, that I can't really list at the
moment.  You can see them in the CVS commits on this list.

As always, please report anything and everything.  Even if it's all
working as it should, please let me know (I'm trying to gauge how many
people we have testing, as well).  There are still 3 pending bugs,
listed below.  If you have the capacity to test any of them (well, 2
of them), please try it out, as they are blocking us right now.

Thanks guys!

Pending still - documentation can hold for a little bit longer

This requires a proper setup, which no one seems to have - does anyone
have /usr on a separate partition and wants to help out testing?

This is an odd one, see the bug report comments.

Fixed, closed.

Both of these are defered until 3.1 as non critical.

These script changes are still pending, but altogether they shouldn't
be more than an hours worth of work.  pacman is most important here.
