Sigh. This started as a simple addition to the man page to document valid file
extensions, and look what happened. The first 4 patches are a resend -- I've fixed
the 2 blockers that Allan pointed out, the whitespace error I noticed, and a final
tweak at Dan's suggestion to my terrible grammar in the man page.

The other patches are a mix of cleanup, features, and a regression fix from an
earlier patch I submitted. I wrote myself a little test suite for checking my
work. It'll probably (eventually) end up as something more significant since, imo,
repo-add deserves some test suite love.


Dave Reisner (9):
  repo-add: bashify reading of .PKGINFO file
  repo-add: store multi-value fields as arrays
  repo-add: use format_entry for all desc/depends fields
  repo-add.8.txt: document valid DB file extensions
  repo-add: enforce file extensions
  repo-add: fix path designation regression
  repo-add: avoid using ls to check for presence of files
  repo-add: move command invocation out of arg parsing loop
  repo-add: allow specifying symlink as repo file
