IRC channels are the best you're likely to do for running guidance. If
there's really serious hose-your-system breakage then somebody usually
posts to mailing lists about it; if it's just package conflicts and
things, then, well, you should pay attention to what the package manager
says it's going to remove and say no if it looks mad.
