I just pushed libretools 20140511 to [libre].  It is mostly a bugfix release.

  * The libremessages' abort() and die() routines now exit with a status
    of 255; this affects checkpkg, find-libdeps, and find-libprovides.
  * librefetch's debugging flags changed. `-P/--print` became
    `-S/--srcbuild`, and it gained `-M/--makepkg`.
  * The mtime of a chroot copy is now updated when syncing from the
    root copy.
  * Extra output from systemd-nspawn is now hidden in librechroot and
    libremakepkg.  This should mean more readable output.
Bug fixes:
  * The order of files in a librefetch-produced tarball are now
    sorted; the tarballs should now be deterministic.
  * An error in code for creating chroots was fixed.
  * Chroots may now be configured for what architecture they 'setarch'
    to; they should now work correctly on mips64el.
  * There was a bug causing shared locks to be non-recursive.
  * Some files were re-licensed between versions of the GPL.
  * Locking should now be faster, though most users won't even notice.

Also, I've been working to get many of the patches to code from
devtools merged upstream.  So that's exciting.

Happy hacking,
