I've rolled out version 20180826 of Parabola dbscripts.

This is a bugfix release.

Changes from 20180716 to 20180826:

 - default configuration:

   * Ensure that when STAGING is taken from the environment, that it
     is absolute.  This should fix spurious errors from db-update.

"Invisible" changes from 20180716 to 20180826, in in preparation for
migrating db-import-pkg to use db-update internally:

 - default configuration:
   * config.local.(import_profiles): Set ARCHES=() appropriately.

 - db-import-pkg: Populate ${workdir}/dif/

 - test suite: Set extglob

Other notes:

 - On winston.parabola.nu, I have run:
       sudo pacman -Syu
       sudo locale-gen
       sudo mv -Tf /etc/makepkg.conf.pacnew /etc/makepkg.conf

Happy hacking,
~ Luke Shumaker
