The list descriptions on the listinfo page were very ambiguous; if even things like packaging issues should go to -general if from third parties, perhaps the -dev-public description should be updated to be clearer about this.)
The currently packaged sbcl 1.2.2-1 seems subject to the ASDF bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/asdf/+bug/982285 where systems installed into /usr (e.g., according to the Arch Linux Lisp Package Guidelines) are not found when the environment variable XDG_DATA_DIRS is unset. (A workaround is to set XDG_DATA_DIRS to /usr/local/share:/usr/share explicitly.)
Yes, the arch-dev-public is for Developers only. If you really feel like your issue is not getting sufficient attention (did you flag the package as out-of-date?), you can find the package maintainer's info on the package page and contact them directly.
I would also suggest checking the testing repo to see if a new version of the package is available to be tested.
