Pacman is the main package management software for Arch. The few modifications done on Obarun are additions to its functionality, for example a hook to the obnews package to display important announcements and need for manual configuration by the user/administrator when upgrades require attention. Other differences are on the /etc/pacman.conf file that relate to pkg verification for validity, preventing systemd and its libraries from ever installing in your system (particularly when arch may add such dependencies on a package not previously needing them), and the list of Obarun repositories in relation to the arch repositories.
