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:

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.

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