Maybe I'm confused by what you are saying, I think we should have only native
arch documentation installed on a system. I'll go out on a limb:

+Description: Documentation, tutorial, and release notes for boot-floppies.
+ This package contains documentation that will be of interest to someone who is

+ where to get disks, cd images and includes trouble shooting hints.
+ The Release notes summarize differences between the current and previous
+ release and as indicate any issues that users upgrading from a previous
+ release should be aware of.  The Tutorial provides a brief introduction to
+ tools used to administer the system.
