Manjaro Pinging ping.manjaro.org

Hi I installed Pi-hole on the a raspberry Pi a few days ago and I noticed that my computer was pinging ping.manjaro.org and I’m wondering if this is some kind of data collection as it is pinging quite often when the system is online. Can someone please explain what it is and what’s it’s doing?

it’s checking for network connection.
no info is sent.

Thanks for letting me know.

For reference, see NetworkManager - ArchWiki

❯ cat /usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/20-connectivity.conf
[connectivity]
uri=http://ping.manjaro.org/check_network_status.txt

Is man pacman-mirrors correct, too?
