The idea of a beta release sounds great to me. Having more time for
testing will help to stabilize the features that were made for pacman
6.0 release.

One item that I would like to clarify is a state of detached
signatures support. At this point we have detached signatures
generated and provided as a part of Arch repos. And we also have
detached signatures support in pacman source code but it is not
enabled by default yet. We should look at enabling detached signatures
support to make sure this codepath is thoroughly tested.
