I just released libretools 20150607 to [libre].  It's principally does
two things:
 1. Fixes bugs
 2. Removes old code

Changes from 20150526 to 20150607:
 * libremessages:flag: An argument that would be interpretted as a
   flag that ends with a colon is now interpretted as a sub-heading.
 * librexgettext: Support the changes to libremessages:flag above, as
   well as the changes introduced in v20150526.
 * librefetch: Correctly generate .sig files with GPG, instead of
   trying to use makepkg to make a tarball.
 * xbs-abs: Fix the error message when checking for unconfigured
 * Remove treepkg and the fullpkg suite.  They have been deprecated in
   favor of dagpkg

Things removed from 20150526 to 20150607:
 * Remove the `toru` tool; it's functionality has been replaced by
   `toru-path` and `toru-where`.  `toru` used plain-text caches,
   `toru-path` and `toru-where` use a much faster Tokyo Cabinet cache.
 * Remove the mips64el-tools (the libretools-mips64el package).  We
   dropped MIPS support a while ago.

I'd especially appreciate contributions of unit tests for toru and

Happy hacking,
~ Luke Shumaker
