[opensuse-buildservice] [ANN] your dreams come true^W^W^W^Wnew osc release

only three weeks after the last release, there is a new osc release with
major new feature you have been longing for. The main attraction is the
ability to locally build linked packages.

* added support for handling linked packages in expanded form. They can
be checked out, updated (expanding or unexpanding them), and, finally,
built locally. Note that this is not due to miraculous osc magic, but
due to the power of the backend. So beer and pizza should to go to
mls :-)

Newly introduced osc options for this are:
osc checkout: --expand-link
osc update: --expand-link and --unexpand-link

Hint: try "osc up -e" in a checkout of a linked package. Then "osc up
-u". Then "osc up -e" again.

* as indicated in the last release, a new command submitreq. There is a
draft explaining its usage here:
(right now nobody is going to notice if you do submit requests. So
don't count on them yet.)

* copypac does a (quicker) server-side copy now by default, when source
and target are on the same buildservice instance.

* build can be called with --debuginfo now (thanks, Juergen!)

* addremove (and other commands) now ignore all dot files, since the
buildservice doesn't handle them.

PS. Since the BS is still exceptionally busy, the packages are NOT built
