Enhancing_Arch_Linux_Stability#Maintaining_Arch is a part of an article about stability, so it suggest using e.g. linux-lts, which is not necessary if we talk about maintenance.

We should decide whether we merge this article into Enhancing_Arch_Linux_Stability or do we move the maintenance part here. -- Karol (talk) 19:18, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Good idea, I'd prefer merging Enhancing_Arch_Linux_Stability#Maintaining_Arch here and properly linking the two articles with each other. Note however that some further reorganization should probably be done, in fact sections like Enhancing_Arch_Linux_Stability#Subscribe_to_NVD.2FCVE_alerts_and_only_upgrade_on_a_security_alert should stay in Enhancing_Arch_Linux_Stability. -- Kynikos (talk) 02:49, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Deletion proposal

This is a continuation of #Merge? above (the article has been marked for deletion).

I agree that this article is currently duplicating others, however I like the idea of having an article dedicated to maintenance (it's also linked from General recommendations).

The "Error checking" section wouldn't have a much better place to be moved to, maybe General Troubleshooting.

It's true that the "Package tasks" section duplicates Pacman Tips#Maintenance, but since Pacman Tips is already very long and has a title which could be considered a bit generic, why not do the opposite merge and move that section here?

Then, as stated in #Merge?, almost all Enhancing_Arch_Linux_stability#Maintaining_Arch could be merged here.

Finally, if we decide to keep it, it should probably be renamed to simply System maintenance.

What do you think? -- Kynikos (talk) 10:11, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Outdated 'Error Checking' section?

It mentions 'errors.log' and 'everything.log' which do not exist on my shiny new install (2014-03-20). I'm guessing a recommendation to check journalctl -b is more appropriate these days? (I'm a total Arch noob, so not sure) Scottt (talk) 10:21, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

+1 for adding journalctl info here. Could you help to add it? --Fengchao (talk) 12:33, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
