In the case of arch they simply stick to released mesa that should work for everyone and let the testing versions rest in pkgbuild, so they dont affect users that want stability over performance/features, at ost i think you should propose this links get included into the wiki to make life easier for early testers like you
if you wanna know the current official releases check mesa3d.org
