[[AUR#Q:_How_many_votes_does_it_take_to_get_a_PKGBUILD_into_community.3F]] says about 10 votes are required before a package makes it into community, or less if a TU chooses to adopt it. I've seen some packages still in the AUR with hundreds of votes. Is this information out of date? Are there other requirements?

Installing Packages

The wiki suggests using

makepkg -s

and then

pacman -U foo.pkg.tar.xz

I recently, on another wiki page, came across the -i option for makepkg which seems to make the separate pacman command unnecessary. Is this actually the case? Or is there a reason not to use the makepkg -i option?

It's unnecessary, but -i is not necessary either, and the point is to actually educate people on how it works, they can find the faster ways later.

How many votes are required for a package to be accepted into community?

AUR#Q:_How_many_votes_does_it_take_to_get_a_PKGBUILD_into_community.3F says about 10 votes are required before a package makes it into community, or less if a TU chooses to adopt it. I've seen some packages still in the AUR with hundreds of votes. Is this information out of date? Are there other requirements? EscapedNull (talk) 14:51, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
