Pacman Transaction Support Project Screenshot

The screenshot is on my website at:

I was about to do a system upgrade this morning, so I can get the new
pacman version among other things. Ofcourse I use the patched pacman on
my system :). Here is a screenie of the first part of the process that
downloads, distills and then installs pacman.

The command line is:

#pacman -SutN jan-stable2

The strange flags there are:

-t : Enable transaction support for the -S option.
-N : Use this explicitly named transaction.

Every other option is as known already by pacman users.

Notice the:

distilling pacman...done.

Among the last lines at the bottom of the screenshot.
