Default Pacman-3.5.0 bug round-up

Here is a list I made to help keep track of the status of issues in the
3.5.0 release that I thought may be on use to others....



Fixed:

(No FS#) - reading from stdin and piping "yes"
- Fix in git

FS#23307 - [makepkg] unexpected EOF error when parenthesis are used in
optdepends description

- Fix attached to bug report (on Allan's working branch)

FS#23314 - [pacman] segfault when a database includes deltas
- Fix attached to bug report (Dan to clean up)

FS#23315 - Makepkg gives fatal error if locale isn't set to en_US.utf8
- Fix identified in bug report. Requires adjustment to translation

FS#23325 - libalpm links to many libraries
- "Fix" to workaround libtool bug on mailing list

FS#23342 - --ignore'ing a package given in the arg list
- Fix on mailing list (on Allan's working branch)

FS#23343 - Pacman does not set world readable permissions on db files
(obeys umask instead)

- Fix attached to bug report (on Allan's working branch)


Bug remaining to be fixed:

FS#23340 - Group selection mechanism and -Sp
- is this a case of excess output, or should the selection of packages
be able to be performed with -Sp? I guess the former given the -Sp is
intended to be used in scripts?


FS#23322 - zsh autocompletion no longer works with pacman 3.5
- The zsh autocompletion file has not been updated in a while.
Do we have a zsh user that wants to tackle this?

(No FS#) - pacman -{S,U,R} --help does not show -p (only --print)
- Was this deliberate to keep it beside the --print-format line?

How about:

- usage message does not show "-T" (this is not a new bug, actually)

- difference in handling "-v" and "--debug", if this is even really to
be called a bug at all (
http://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2011-March/012693.html)

I don't see FS open for either of these. I'll do so if you want.

Fix pushed. Ignore my other false alarm emails, if you start with an
actual clean build things seem fine.

Yes please, although these aren't terribly important enough to warrant
holding up a maint release.

Looking way back in the repository, we've never documented -p in the
--help output, only in the manpage. Interesting...

Either way, I don't think this one is a blocker, and it is also a
string change which we either need to figure out now (so new source
strings can get pushed) or in the very near future, otherwise it has
to wait.
