== <s> Removing / changing the part about [community] </s> ==
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:<br>
The [community] repo is enabled by default in {{ic|pacman.conf}}. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines:
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
Any typos would have to be fixed of course :p <br>
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.

== <s> JSON </s> ==
There should be some sort of info on the JSON interface [[User:Daenyth|Daenyth]] 20:10, 29 November 2009 (EST)
: Thanks. There is [[AurJson]]. And I add the link to Summary related article. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk: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 --[[User:Mloskot|Mloskot]] ([[User talk:Mloskot|talk]]) 22:48, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
:Updating = installing a new version, so [[Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages]]. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk: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 --[[User:Mloskot|Mloskot]] ([[User talk:Mloskot|talk]]) 19:43, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
:: Maybe Mloskot is talking something like {{ic|pacman -Syu}} that will automaticlly get AUR database and rebuild & install if new version is uploaded. I use [https://github.com/bruenig/packer/wiki packer] for this job. And {{ic|--devel}} option can auto rebuild git /svn package. Very convient. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 03:18, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
::: The section I linked to has info about AUR helpers. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 14:22, 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). --[[User:Mloskot|Mloskot]] ([[User talk:Mloskot|talk]]) 18:43, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
