I just released libretools 20181004 to [libre] and pushed the source
tarball to <https://repo.parabola.nu/other/libretools/>.

TL;DR: Don't forget to merge /etc/libretools.conf.pacnew

This is a pretty boring release for users (though overhauling the test
suite was a lot of work for me!).  The "big" change is that
librerelease now allows you to adjust DBSCRIPTS_CONFIG, which is
something that those working on ppc64le will want to do.

Changes from 20180920 to 20181004:

 - librerelease:
    * Sets DBSCRIPTS_CONFIG for db-update.  The value that it is set
      to is configured in libretools.conf
    * The display of what hook command is running should now be more
 - libremakepkg: distcc integration should be fixed.  It's apparently
   been broken for over a year.  DISTCC_HOSTS='+zeroconf' is still
   unsupported, though.
 - The test suite was converted from Roundup to BATS.

Happy hacking,
~ Luke Shumaker
