Packages to Promote

This is a list of audio/multimedia packages that I think would benefit the community or some Archers if they were distributed and easily available as binaries. Anyone can edit this and add an entry, in turn suggesting a package for adoption.

Keep in mind that more packages == more resources == costs incurred so a package has to meet at least one criterion:

  • popular
  • useful
  • supplemental or complementary to a promoted package

See: Terms & Conditions


Collaborate with Cilyan to get the entire suite up and running. Then propose it for promotion to [community].

Projects to Break

  • devtools - add some features I personally use
  • makepkg - a few ideas to clean up and propose
  • archiso - implement session-saving (would probably just be forked like godane's stuff)
