new magpie command: update

i'm happy to report yet another magpie release, version 1.110410

this release brings a new subcommand: update (aka refresh)

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 modules packages for mageia! but it's not yet over, automation will go one step further - stay tuned...
