  • chrootupdate - Allows the update of all supported chroots by an otherwise unprivileged user.
  • chrootstatus - CLI version of the status indicator on the website.
  • unlock - Allows the removal of stale lockfiles by otherwise unprivileged users.
  • Users may set the makepkg.conf PACKAGER variable by creating a file called .packager in their home directory. Whatever is included on the first line of that file will replace the default packager ( Build Server).
