After the base metapackage pile of crap that was posted, I (and others)
reminded everyone of the process that had been held for years.

The response was complaints that this process was not followed recently,
to which we pointed at the arch-dev-public mailing list post for
multiple non-trivial news entries.  Only simple "--overwrite" type posts
have not been posted on arch-dev-public.

This is not new - it has been the standard for many, many years -
spanning from before I was around the distro.
