@ca81 while Arch community could be a decent bunch, Arch Linux itself suffers from bad decisions a lot. Their policy on static libraries makes working with certain programming languages (Haskell, Rust, Golang) barely possible. In addition, Arch repos often have packages with broken dynamic dependencies. I once had pacman broken because of this.
We are a cute and loving international community Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ !
