+ <h3>Transition from the Official Repositories</h3>
+ <p>If you plan to move from the <a href="">official repositories</a>
+ to <a href="">our community maintained repositories</a>, follow
+ these steps:
+ <ul>
+ <li> Put any mirror from <a href="">our mirrolist</a>
+ into <code>/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist</code>.
+ <li> Execute <code>pacman -Syyw archlinux32-keyring</code> to download our keyring package.
+ <li> Execute <code>pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/archlinux32-keyring-*.pkg.tar.xz</code> to install our keyring package.
+ <li> Run <code>pacman -Suu</code> for a full transition. Note, that some packages are currently newer in the official repositories and will be downgraded, therefore.
+ </ul></p>
