Hi Patrice,

these packages are perfectly fine, they are essentially the old packages 
updated and tested in parallel.
I find it ufortunate, you give up, but please consider that we are a 
rolling distro, so manjaro-tools and profiles are no different than 
other packages, and are subject to change.

I think the main issue you have is that you don't pull regularly if you 
use git packages, the other option was to use the repo packages and just 
let them update.
