this release brings a new subcommand: update

it will automatically update a perl module package being checked out to
the latest version, update buildrequires (with fixspec), try to build it
locally, commit if successful, wait according to build-system hints,
then submit it.

it's easy to use:

    $ eval $( magpie co -s perl-Foo-Bar )
    $ magpie update -v

note: it requires a minicpan installation on your computer...

now, you too can join the fun of updating perl packages for mageia! but
it's not yet over, automation will go one step further - stay tuned...
