With due respect to all developers and package maintainers, I think Arch 
needs to have policy that maintainer must be using the package they 

This will make sure that they dont simply bump the pkgver / pkgrel and 
release untested package.

This bug can create a disaster for someone, if person blindly tries a 
regular fix to such problems i.e. --overwrite usr/sbin. Their whole 
system would crash as there will be no symlink to usr/bin and many 
executables would go missing. And probably will not boot.
