Renaming the "TU, Trusted User" section for consistency

I would like to rename the section to "TU/Trusted User" since other sections, like Arch terminology#repository/repo, also use a slash instead of a comma.

I think acronyms are usually introduced after the term in parentheses, e.g. "Trusted User (TU)". For consistency it would be "repository (repo)". -- Lahwaacz (talk) 11:53, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
This section needs to be renamed to "Package maintainer" instead of TU, however for now it might be a good idea to add a note that the term "Trusted user" is now deprecated, and "Package maintainer" will supersede it.
Once the entire ArchWiki has been updated to reflect the new terminology, then a new category for "Package maintainer" can be added with the content of Arch_terminology#TU, Trusted User.
Upon addition of "Package maintainer" section to the page, the Arch_terminology#TU, Trusted User section should contain a deprecation notice so that long term users returning know that the term has now been deprecated, and superseded by "Package maintainer"
That is my suggestion, let me know what you think :)

Document "Wiki time"

The spacetime anomaly regarding unexpectedly long delay for implementing seemingly minor changes should be documented here ;) Edit: Could also be named "Arch time" and possibly link to "When it's done".

Maybe Arch years? — Lahwaacz (talk) 12:33, 26 February 2023 (UTC)
Hah! I only knew about Cat years :o --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 12:58, 26 February 2023 (UTC)
The concept of "wiki time" is common, but any terminology we come up with isn't. As such FAQ seems a better place to document this, if anywhere. -- Alad (talk) 17:47, 26 February 2023 (UTC)
