Seems --inline to git send-email wasn't the right then :-/

Understood. I'm probably stopping my effort right here, if it's
agreed that the wiki is the primary documentation for pacman.
I'm probably thinking in different context than the typical archlinux-dev,
for me it's important software can be re-used at other places and thus
I don't think putting "how to get used to tool x" information into a
distribution wiki is a great idea.
But again, it may be that my thinking way is not compatible to what
you prefer here.

It is indeed. But if I want to find out
"how to install a package from a file", I will go to the examples section
instead of reading the whole manpage at first.
