I couldn't find any doc about pacdiff.
I manually merged all my pacnew files using oldschool diff and a text 
editor. Not very conveniant, but it did the job.
Now playing finally with Vimdiff, as there is a lot of good doc. Even if 
I am lost with all these keyboard commands, I like the dual screen 
interface, and think I will stick to it. I will maybe add an entry in 
the *Pacnew and Pacsave* *files*, as I think a list of most used 
shortcuts could be explained.

TY for all your advices.
