List all repositories

The command curl -s 'https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unofficial_user_repositories' | awk '/^Server =/ { print $3 }' does not list the haskell repositories, as they do not provide a server address on the page itself. I suggest either clarifying the tip, changing the command so that it actually works (no idea how, though) or providing the server address of the repos on the page itself (introduces redundancy, though). – Qw3ry (talk) 09:59, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Command removed with [1], closing. -- Alad (talk) 20:27, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

I suggest we just remove it and merge the other sections into one big list when the official announcement drops. -- Lonaowna (talk) 13:10, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
