Why is nsswitch.conf different than default Arch Linux?

I'm wondering why my /etc/nsswitch.conf is different than the default. I'm going through my pacdiff but I don't understand what changes I should keep for Gaurda.

Should I just keep things the same and ignore the nsswitch.pacnew?

diff /etc/nsswitch.conf /etc/nsswitch.conf.pacnew | xsel -bi

< passwd: files 
< group: files [SUCCESS=merge] 
< shadow: files
> passwd: files systemd
> group: files [SUCCESS=merge] systemd
> shadow: files systemd
> gshadow: files systemd
< hosts: files mymachines myhostname mdns_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] dns wins
> hosts: mymachines resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] files myhostname dns

I think that long ago it was

Add a hook to remove systemd from nsswitch.conf to fix boot delays and fix network problems

So you can keep the things as they are.

Or use the new version and see what happens? Who knows, maybe the bug that led to the change has been fixed?


I'm trying default form Arch LInux. I'll report back if I have any issues.
