to http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_User_Guidelines#Submitting_Packages_to_UNSUPPORTED ? In the age of aunpack, who cares about tar commands? :| Make it easier for people who are sane enough to write PKGBUILD files but too sane to remember legacy compression commands (7z anyone?)--[[User:Qubodup|Qubodup]] 18:25, 26 October 2009 (EDT)
 
 
== Using fakeroot part of article editing ==
 
 
It says "By default export USE_FAKEROOT="y" is included in /etc/makepkg.conf, so unless you have switched it off it is already enabled." Newer Arch systems are using BUILDENV directive and user should set ! right before the fakeroot to disable it or delete ! before fakeroot to enable it.--[[User:Jazz1303|Jazz1303]] 13:15, 3 November 2009 (EST)

== 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:<br>
 
...<br>
 
The [community] repo is enabled by default in <tt>pacman.conf</tt>. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines:
 
{{File|name=/etc/pacman.conf|content=
 
<nowiki>
 
...
 
[community]
 
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
 
...
 
</nowiki>
 
}}
 
...<br>
 
Any typos would have to be fixed of course :p <br>
 
Is community still disabled by default in abs.conf btw?

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