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)
The section I linked to has info about AUR helpers. -- 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). --Mloskot (talk) 18:43, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Close. --Fengchao (talk) 03:44, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
