GNUTLS 1.3.0 that was uploaded to testing last week appears to be a development snapshot. As we don't put early-stage development snapshots in our distribution, GNUTLS will get pulled back from testing. An updated 1.2.9 package is uploaded to current, which will force-downgrade GNUTLS 1.3.x on testing boxes. Packages in testing built against GNUTLS 1.3.x will be removed without new packages providing forced downgrades. This means that when you upgrade, pacman will complain about broken dependencies for packages that have versioned dependencies on GNUTLS. To "upgrade" to the "newest" GNUTLS, please downgrade these packages in the same run as you "upgrade" GNUTLS.
