Guys, he is right.

Sometimes it happens that you encounter an issue that has been covered
in news when you install Arch and then you run pacman -Syu months after
the news entry was published.

This is a problem, at least to some extent and it should be looked at
it, maybe someone can come up with a brilliant idea...

But it is not the first time this has been discussed, it comes every
time when an important news is released.
What's wrong with that pacmatic functionality that shomehow tries to
solve this, since it is not implemented in pacman?
