==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.

:Maybe it's time to ask this question on the forum (I hope it's not yet a crime to instigate Karol to post something on the forum :D ). -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 11:57, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
::I did some checking by hand and found that many repos do provide them now, but some still don't. [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1177795#p1177795 I opened a thread] on the forums asking if more maintainers would consider adding this feature to their repos. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 13:56, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
