My point wasn't to spear the site -- in a way, the more and different 
variations of Arch -- the better. The original thought that provoked the 
discussion was link to ARM forum thread that dealt exactly with the util-linux 
conflicts I see on my box. When I followed the link to 
http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3036&p=18467 I was presented 
with what looked like an Arch site but required a separate login/pass to post. 
(no big deal, just confusing). I just wanted to make sure that there were not 
2 forums for different issues in Arch. (I couldn't see why there would be, but 
it was confusing enough to point it out)

Thanks for the info and clarification Tom/Pierre, all. Learning occurred. 
Looks like the ARM folks have shadow issues to solve as well :)
