Talk:Arch User Repository
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:
... [community] 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.

There should be some sort of info on the JSON interface Daenyth 20:10, 29 November 2009 (EST)
- Thanks. There is AurJson. And I add the link to Summary related article. -- Fengchao (talk) 03:46, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Upgrading AUR packages
- 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 -Syuthat will automaticlly get AUR database and rebuild & install if new version is uploaded. I use packer for this job. And
--develoption 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)
