Hey all,

Message from Alad, one of our dear Wiki administrators:

Historically there's been two installation guides for Arch, the 
Installation Guide [1], provided on archiso as install.txt, and the 
Beginners' Guide [2] as a more explanative guide compiled by the 

There have been efforts in merging both guides since 2012 [3], but this 
only gained traction recently. [4] The plan is to merge both guides on 
the wiki "clean-up" day this Friday [5]

If you have any suggestions, also regarding if the merged guide will be 
editable by users [6], please add them to the talk page.
