Some of the Arch developers are pacman developers, and others are
systemd developers. Both projects are part of the base install and are a
significant part of the distributions flavour. The msys2 project uses
pacman on Windows, so it's not really any more specific to Arch than

Bashing an open-source project and spreading FUD about it is always an
attack on the open-source community, whether it's GNOME, systemd, KDE,
PHP, or something else. It's one thing to take a rational look at a
project and criticize it, and quite another to promote content accusing
the developers of having bad faith without *any* evidence.
