Removing / changing the part about [community]

IMO this whole part should just be removed now that community have been seperated from aur. But as a minimum it should be cleaned up, since there have been cases where it have confused users rather than help them:

Perhaps something like:
...
The [community] repo is enabled by default in pacman.conf. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines:

/etc/pacman.conf
...
[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
...

...
Any typos would have to be fixed of course :p
Is community still disabled by default in abs.conf btw?

I don't think the [community] section should be removed; improved, maybe. Where does this confusion arise from? What do you mean by "separated from AUR"? My understanding is that they are very much connected.

Their relationship is clear in the introduction. So closing. -- Fengchao (talk) 02:31, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

JSON

There should be some sort of info on the JSON interface Daenyth 20:10, 29 November 2009 (EST)

Thanks. There is AurJson. And I add the link to Summary related article. -- Fengchao (talk) 03:46, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Upgrading AUR packages

The wiki does not explain how AUR end users can upgrade previously installed packages with newer versions available from AUR --Mloskot (talk) 22:48, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Updating = installing a new version, so Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages. -- Karol (talk) 13:09, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but the Installing packages section should IMO mention that, as the question is obvious, and the answer is not --Mloskot (talk) 19:43, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Maybe Mloskot is talking something like pacman -Syu that will automaticlly get AUR database and rebuild & install if new version is uploaded. I use packer for this job. And --devel option can auto rebuild git /svn package. Very convient. -- Fengchao (talk) 03:18, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

@Fengchao Yes I'm talking about something like that. @Karol Thanks, the helpers is what I meant. Simply, original version of the article did explain there are such utilities available. (This talk section can be closed, I think). --Mloskot (talk) 18:43, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
