I have to agree with pyther. You, devs, have been doing all you can to
warn the users. There is the arch-announce mailing list, there are
messages from pacman when it installs something that might break
others, there is the forum, there are announcements on Arch's home
page... Damn! there are even RSS feeds!

Even though, many users will complain, just like when X got updated
and HAL needed to be running. IMHO, you should say "We're sorry, but
we did try to warn you". I mean, what else could you do? Call every
user and tell them that there'll be a big update?

You're doing a great job, don't let the few people from the Arch
community that don't know how to read upset you.
