Hi Guillaume,

is manjaro-systems the only package we have to take care of? Is it 
better to some configuration so we can decide which packages should be 
installed/checked first? Your patch is fine. I rather would have an 
additional option to also check for other packages. Maybe we will 
introduce something which needs the same checkings.

... maybe I'm wrong and we can handle all with manjaro-system.
