I'd specified the NTP servers for systemd-timesyncd to use in /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf
Upgrading to 213-6 did not preserve my changes to timesyncd.conf - it got replaced with the one in the package. I would expect the changed timesyncd.conf to be preserved and a timesyncd.conf.pacnew to be created.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

* config and/or log files etc.
From pacman.log:

[2014-06-08 23:47] [PACMAN] upgraded systemd-sysvcompat (213-5 -> 213-6)

Steps to reproduce:
1) With systemd 213-5 append a “” line to /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf
2) Upgrade systemd to 213-6
3) observe your changes to /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf have been lost
