http://archlinux.2023198.n4.nabble.com – Hi devs.  I just installed arch with a gnome desktop, so I used pacman about 200 times today and it was a real pleasure. I've used a lot of package managers from both linux and bsd, but pacman is the best IMHO.  It's completely intuitive and easy to learn just by using it (trial-and-error of course because nobody reads the man pages) so congrats on a great project. BTW, I decided to try arch after listening to this podcast: http://www.jupiterbroadcasting.com/38086/the-arch-way-aas-s27e03/A lot of this episode is not about archlinux, so you'll need to ff to the actual arch segment.
