==The future of Unofficial repos==

== List all repositories ==
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.

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)
