AUR scripts or not scripts

Hi! I am not sure if it is good to have scripts in the AUR section here may be is better have link to [1] by lahwaacz for pepper flash and have more theoretical descriptions instead of the scripts.

failed update or upgrade

The main Recovery after failed update or upgrade section should it be moved to sub-page or to the new article?

I agree it should be moved, but I can't think of an existing suitable article, so I'd create a new page for it, categorized under Category:System recovery. Also, it would be great if you could crosslink it with other articles in that category. — Kynikos (talk) 01:29, 22 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

External link under "Using systemd"

The external link under "Using systemd" has already broken once. Should we add the information from the article to the wiki page itself? That way we won't have to depend on the permanence and uptime of the linked article.

No, because the article is rubbish and has no place in Arch's documentation. Jasonwryan (talk) 20:33, 13 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Apart from warning about the general ill-advisedness of doing this at all, shouldn't the article also point out that its recommendation to do partial updates is independently dangerous and unsupported? --cfr (talk) 20:43, 8 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The whole page is such a clusterfsck in terms of conception and execution, I wouldn't think it warrants anything more than removal. Jasonwryan (talk) 20:48, 8 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
