Yes, its ridiculous how something so small as 100 MB or even 30MB  can be such an issue, but in a marginal internet area like where I am, it is! So, by placing the "big ones" at the beginning (say, xorg), it matters little to folks with bandwidth, but to us in the boonies, woukd be a big help.

It’s probably a good idea to mention steps to reproduce the issue. Why is something already downloaded wasted, when doing what attempt again?


A „Core Linux utility adduser” doesn’t exist. What does exist for Linux are helpers named like that, at least one GPL licensed helper and a BSD licensed helper . However, Arch Linux probably isn’t the only distro that doesn’t provide an “adduser” utility at all, by official repositories, , . While Ubuntu does provide this helper, it‘s still even not a „Core“ utility. It‘s just some software, such as an Internet browser. You can get different web browsers for all operating systems, if one of those browsers should suck, than this web browser still doesn‘t become a „Core“ utility that makes this operating system „suck“. You can‘t blame an operating system for an issue, that does exist between screen and keyboard.
