If you look closely the information is there, for example:

netctl => "Configure the network for the newly installed environment:
see Network configuration." =>

RAID setup => "If wanting to create any stacked block devices for LVM,
disk encryption or RAID, do it now." =>

So it's all in there, you just have to look :-)

This has been announced and discussed on the mailing list and irc. And
the descision has been made to merge it into one page.

The new smaller guide just links directly to the pages which contain
detailed information without the duplication of information.
