I just released libretools 20180103 to [libre] and pushed the source
tarball to <https://repo.parabola.nu/other/libretools/>.

Changes from 20170913 to 20180103:

 - librechroot:
   * Work correctly with libre/qemu-user-static-binfmt (which replaces
   * Pass --as-pid2 to systemd-nspawn (from devtools)
   * Pass the environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH through to inside
     of the chroot (from devtools)

 - libremakepkg:
   * Don't collect coredumps by default. If you would like to collect
     coredumps, use `ulimit` to raise the soft limit in your PKGBUILD
     (from devtools)
   * Configure the chroot build-user's GnuPG to auto-retrieve keys;
     signature verification by makepkg should now work without having
     to manually import the keys first. (from devtools32)
   * Pass the environment variable SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH through to
     makepkg inside of the chroot (from devtools)

 - libreblacklist:
   * Update to know about new columns in blacklist.txt
   * Add get-url function
   * Correctly handle empty columns
   * Ignore the replacement column; query the local pacman repos

 - librelib: 
   * Begin deleting code in favor of the versions from libmakepkg
     (from devtools)

 - manpages: proofread more

Special thanks to Isaac David for his work on libreblacklist.

Happy hacking,
~ Luke Shumaker
