I agree here, this shouldn't be too hard to do.

What needs to get in here, just to make sure I don't miss anything?
1. current -> core transition (also need to do this for GIT)
2. Update the mirror lists (I'll pull them from GIT)
3. Ensure pacman-cumulative.patch is already incorporated into CVS

Let me know if I am forgetting anything.
