I don't know how it can get any more transparent. Most of the discussion and
defense (if necessary) happens on arch-dev-public. Then there is usually some
mention on arch-general, and always announcements. Look at the past three
announcements: filesystem, /lib, and grub2. It's all there.

It's rare that you can actually hose your system to a point where you can't fix
it from the install image and using pacman -r or setting up a chroot.
