Back on the 15th of March, Dan mentioned the idea of making a release in 
a month 
So, given a month has passed, lets start making plans so we can do that 
next month!

Things that need done before release:

1) Nagy's  -D patch should be included.   I am not sure what the final 
status of that was.

2) Revert/fix the cross-build library linking patch as this forces some 
linking that it should not.  (perhaps consider making linking with 
--as-needed the default when supported too?)

3) Fix "makepkg --source" issue with split packages and 
install/changelog files (FS#18831)  Related bugs FS#18394 and FS#16004 
can be fixed at the same time.   I have most of a patch prepared.

4) Pull in other stuff from working branches
     - Nagy has another couple of minor patches
     - Xavier has a couple (I am not sure about asciidoc one...)
     - I have few patches (all makepkg ones are well tested, pacman -Qo 
"functional which" could do with a final review)

5) Tidy up bash_completion stuff?  (FS#16630)

6) Look at Flyspray roadmap:  
http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=index&tasks=&project=3&due=69  (I 
just removed package signing to 4.0...).   I think the only thing not 
covered above is FS#15657 (presence of new db version is not checked 
when <dbfile>.part exists) and that is fairly minor...

7) Any other patches waiting on the mailing list?

Any other points/concerns people want to mention?
