About

This package contains scripts that can help merge .pacnew files after a pacman upgrade. These scripts print their results to STDOUT and thus do NOT make any changes to the files. It is up to the user to inspect the output and, if satisfied, redirect it to the original file and then delete the .pacnew file.

Options

The scripts accept "-c" and "--compare" as options and will display relevant information about differences between the files. For group and gshadow, this will display 3 columns to compare the original, .pacnew and merged files and will use colors to highlight changes. For the mirrorlist and locale.gen, it will check that all settings in the original file are available in the new file and print out a list of any that aren't (e.g. if one of your current mirrors has been dropped from the mirrorlist, it will be listed in the output).
