The future of Unofficial repos

I'd like to see more work of this type. Sometimes there are certain projects that don't mesh well with other things, such as the community repo. The 'kdemod' project is a good example. If you want to contribute with your own builds, you can check page Custom local repository.

In the future, well-thought-out user repositories may be ideal for lots of supplementary things. Forming a "web of trust" is important in cases like this, so we may begin keeping a list of "recommended" repositories somewhere, in order to make it seem more official and trustworthy.

Why don't repos provide files.tar.gz database?

Is there a reason many (most?) user repos don't provide files.tar.gz? http://projects.archlinux.org/dbscripts.git/tree/cron-jobs/create-filelists

Without it tools like pkgfile won't work.
