:You can find some background discussion about it [http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=89328 here], but basically it comes down to best practice.  Setting aside the argument about dependency issues found in that link, it's just a waste of time for the end user to sync the pacman database with every single package installation.  It is assumed that the end user performs a system update (-Syu) before installing any software...so syncing during each command is pointless.  I believe the [[Pacman]] article has been updated accordingly as well. --[[User:Thayer|thayer]] 15:16, 29 January 2010 (EST)

Hi Thayer

I just noticed that you changed a bunch of pacman -Sy into -S... what is the reason for this?
