I added this yesterday, and then removed it today after some test building:

For the full elementary OS experience, there is a metapackage pantheon-git-metaAUR, which pulls all of the development version desktop environment and application packages that are currently available.

This is not a viable installation method at the moment, as various packages fail to compile or install. quequotion (talk) 06:23, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

"Stable Release" vs. Development packages

Ideally, this article should not be recommending -git packages, but last I checked the "stable release" packages were fraught with problems such as missing ubuntu-patched dependencies and building against libraries that are more up-to-date than expected in Archlinux. Eventually, elementary OS will have a new release (some time following the next Ubuntu LTS release) and the code in the current -git package set could form a new "stable release" set. quequotion (talk) 12:44, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
