The command {{ic | <nowiki>curl -s 'https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unofficial_user_repositories' | awk '/^Server =/ { print $3 }'</nowiki>}} does not list the [[Unofficial_user_repositories#haskell-core | 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).

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)
