Packaging request #2506: arch introduced a base metapackage to replace the meta group
[pacman] update repos in pacman.conf and wiki
we could add [nonsystemd], [nonsystemd-multilib] and [nonsystemd-testing] repos (commented by default) so users do not have to manually add the lines.
I wrote a wiki article about this repo some time ago

- Tracker changed from Feature Request to Housekeeping
yes this is a very good idea - one of those housekeepig tasks that could have been done long ago - i just added [nonsystemd] to the pacman.conf's - also [kernels] was not in the pacman.conf's for i686 or armv7h; so i added that too; and some descriptions of each special repo
while going over these, i noticed several other repos that are not in the pacman.conf's - these have not seen any attention in years - are any of these useful anymore? - should we delete them?

- Status changed from open to in progress
i re-built pacman today with the changes noted above - its the same version that is in the repos now (v5.2.1); but for some reason, one of the tests are failing, and only for x86_64 - being relatively low priority for now, i wont bother publishing the i686 and arm packages, and look into that test failure after the next installers are ready, if no one else does by then
