Is there a reason many (most?) user repos don't provide files.tar.gz?

Without it tools like pkgfile won't work.

Repos that provide only foo.db.tar.gz databases

They are incompatible with pacman 3.5. What do we do with them? -- Karol 19:47, 2 May 2011 (EDT)

I decided to remove them. Since they're still broken, it's a pretty good indication that they aren't maintained. thestinger 08:02, 11 August 2011 (EDT)
