It helps you avoid four common mistakes. First, it adds a tiny RSS reader. The Arch Devs will routinely announce major compatibility breaks on the Arch feed, and it is stuff you really should see before updating. Disseminating information rapidly and effectively will be an essential role for the next generation of package managers, and I for one would prefer pacman to stay ahead of the curve. These information updates are trickier than application updates (How do you checksum the integrity of someone's thoughts?), but are just as critical. A record of Arch News is maintained in /var/log/arch-news.log.
