Request, tar.gz instructions

Would you please add

tar cfvz PKG.tar.gz PKG/

to ? 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?)--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.--Jazz1303 13:15, 3 November 2009 (EST)

Fixed. -- pointone 16:47, 23 January 2010 (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:
The [community] repo is enabled by default in pacman.conf. If disabled/removed, it can be enabled by uncommenting/adding these two lines: Template:File ...
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)
