Bugs I intend to fix

  • FS#8645 - Restore pacsave files. First attempt at fixing [1]

Scripts for pacman-contrib

  • List file not under pacman's control - [2] [3]
  • Repo cleaner - [4] [5]. Note: more options available in pacman-3.2
  • File search - [6]. Perhaps too Arch specific.
  • tools for dealing with pacman log


  • Hooks
  • Do more with optdepends
  • Add a lot more documentation to the code base
  • Increase pactest coverage [7]
