I just thought I would bring you all up to speed on some of the information currently going around the watercooler.
Judd has officially accepted a job offer from Google, and as such, will be unable to continue with his Archlinux work.
Lead of the project has moved to the capable hands of Jason Chu (Xentac). Jason's first order of business, as we push towards the 0.7.1.1 release (Codename: Pony), will be creating a [stable] repository, with older software. This will be the main focus of our work from now on, with all the security backports and compatability fixes. As such, the normal repos will begin to lack a bit, but those will be removed in time as we move to a more 'stable' and 'production quality' release system.
Expect 0.7.1.1 in a few weeks.
