Are you still maintaining this script?

@Dragonlord : Using release versioning scheme now.

2nd look reveals this is actually a -git package, but the package name does not reference this. I'd suggest renaming accordingly.

Bugs fixed.

There is an open issue regarding a bug that can delete your entire filesystem. Well, it happened to me. The fix is even described by that author as a reply to the issue, yet it has not been fixed in half a year, even though it would only take the insertion of two characters. I'm requesting the orphan flag as the author has not made any online appearance since august. (based on github and bbs data)

@francoism90: Writing should be faster than a SSD, reading will be the same.

Interesting, as I understand you can run /root from the RAM? Would this be faster then using a SSD? Yeah, it's has no protection against corruption, etc., but having enough memory you could benefit from using liveroot?

There's now a new option in the packages branch of liveroot. It can only be accessed via the compiler and requires a pacman cache that has only up to date packages (no old packages) currently. It runs like oroot=live, but is generally faster to boot up since it installs the packages in the package cache to the overlain root.

Fixed up rsyncing issues in compiler and oroot hook. Now uses rsync -ax --no-whole-file --inplace for better syncing. In addition, I added mkinitcpio -p linux to post_upgrade in the install script.
