Unofficial user repositories
Why unofficial user repositories
Since the AUR only allows users to upload PKGBUILD and other package build related files, but does not provide a means for distributing a binary package, a user may want to create a binary repository of their packages elsewhere.
However: Be advised, if you only put your packages in your private repo and neglect AUR, your package will never make it into community repo nor a central storage space(AUR) which is bad for users, since they will have to add 'YetAnotherThird-party-Repo'(YATR) to their /etc/pacman.conf which will make it slower to update. But the main reason you should not have repo-only packages is that not having packages in a central place confuses and gives users a second job in that they now have to search for Repositories in addition to Packages.
Thus the best way to have a private repo is to offer it as a supplement to the AUR for those users who don't want to compile. You should try to avoid to offer it as a substitute.
The community repository, maintained by the TUs
[community] Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/community/os/i686/
The community repository is included in pacman's default configuration, but disabled. You can enable it by removing the # in these two lines:
[community] Include = /etc/pacman.d/community
