We can build some internals instead before we release something to be 
tested by the public. When I'm done with the kernels I upload syslinux4 
and you can test after I checked with manjaroiso. You might see some 
commits in gitlab about it. Then there might be no need to push to many 
RCs out ...

syslinux6 supports EFI now. This is great news for a graphical menu but 
currently it seems not to work properly. We use a different system to 
boot UEFI and I even don't know if that works at all. syslinux4 was only 
used for BIOS so I revert any changes I did to adopt to syslinux6 and we 
wait until there is a working way by upstream (Arch) to use syslinux as 
the one livecd bootloader for all cases ...
