Hi fellow manjaro fans!
Recently I wanted to swap my mesa stack for a different build, but forgot to disable dependency checks. Thus, the operation has uninstalled a good 700 packages, among them xorg, many system packages, and desktop environments.
Luckily I kept my cool and used regex to compile the pacman log into a list of packages to reinstall, and now I got all of them back and everything works.
My question is, as I have 700 explicitly installed packages, how can I reset their state to what it was in the manjaro defaults, i.e. I guess mostly 'implicit'. As I understand, I might just get a very cluttered system within a few release cycles if I let them be flagged as explicit.
