I want the triangles back, please

a few months to a year ago, arch's default gnome/gdm/etc had a background that was lots of different blue triangles. then a pacman -Syu one day, and it was gone to a flat blue! where did the triangle background go? how can i get it back? i'd like it back, please!

seriously, though -- it's not just that i liked the background (which i did), it's that i was never able to track down the answer. it leads to the more general question, how can i pin down "what changed in arch package XYZZY circa six months ago?"

can you roll arch back to how it was at a particular date and time? is there a way to do it without installing, e.g. a diff-dump? what's the best tactic?

You should have saved the wallpaper packages. They get invisible with time somehow.
