read submitting-patches in the pacman source, Aaron just added it a
few days ago. It is just standard procedure for submitting things with
things like kernel development, etc, and a good model to follow.

It is actually libdownload (as well as libarchive) now, so a note on
that should be made.

It is configurable now.

It is an 'unit' (not sure what SB is) to allow people to know how long
a package build takes with some package being a reference. Perhaps
'standard build unit' or something.

It wrapped the line.

Notice that I didn't really add anything...just removed a bunch of
stuff. If anyone wants to sit down and comb the cvs logs and mailing
lists for changes that have been made and compile them in a file, it
would be much appreciated.
