The first thing that came to my mind is:
How to use makepkg correctly
(Running it for pacman-git's PKGCONFIG results in
==> ERROR: Install file (pacman.install) does not exist.)
How to install a package from a file
One finds this on the wiki, but I would prefer to have it
How to upgrade your system
How to remove a package
How to downgrade a package
That's not much for now, but having examples gives a better and
faster insight into the application (git devs did that pretty good).
