I've rolled out version 20180622 of Parabola dbscripts.

This is a minor release.

Changes from 20180612 to 20180622:

 - Improve documentation
 - Avoid parsing PKGBUILD files if we can; get the info directly from
   the pacman databases.
 - Pull all XBS code in to a separate file.
 - Improve quoting
 - test/:
   * Rename a few of the test cases
   * Fix the test suite
   * Add more tests

Excitingly, this has merged the 'master' branch from Arch's dbscripts.
Most of the changes had already been cherry picked, but this will make
pulling changes easier in the future.

On winston.parabola.nu, I have
 - run: sudo pacman -Syu --ignore=linux-libre-lts

Happy hacking,
~ Luke Shumaker
