This is a rolling release, not an LTS. There is no excuse to not be updating
regularly and reading the news. If its a production machine and you are
worried about breakage maybe you shouldnt be running arch on it. The ML,
forums, and irc are full of people who refuse to read the news or update
regularly, and we all waste time answering questions that with proper arch
maintenance would ensure that they never come up.
