Really, really great news! Congrats to Bapt and all of the contributors,
large and small, for doing the work to make this happen. The real, live,
provable solver is something that was desperately needed. Thaqt is followed
closely with multi-repository mode. All of the rest is great, too.

I think one bullet was a bit mangled in French->English translation,
though. What does "The unicity of a package is not anymore origin" mean? I
have a couple of guesses, but I am not really sure. Ithink the best
translations would be "The unicity of a package is no longer the origin",
but I am unsure of "unicity". "Uniqueness"? That would make sense, but I am
not quite sure that is what was meant.
