To Rensel: a request for the AUR branch of E17 packages...

Could you please rename the e17 group in the Community repo to something like e17-stable or e17-snapshot? The incompatible between the Community repo and your and Nickm's repos is rather annoying.

Re: To Rensel: a request for the AUR branch of E17 packages...

I was actually going to change the group naming in my unofficial repository (merge efl and e17 into e17-cvs) to prevent conflicts between [community] and it, but I had no intention to rename the e17 group in community. Community packages are meant to be moved to [extra] when stable versions are released, and e17 is the most obvious name for their group. Furthermore, Nickm's packages are rebuilt every day, while I would need to rebuild some just to change the group they belong to.
I think it would be better if Nickm renamed his e17 group to e17-cvs. This way only his UUR and mine will be incompatible, but I doubt anyone would use both the repos.

Well, community has just the freedesktop.org snapshots and many useful apps are missing, so use it if you just want to give E17 a try.
Nickm's repo has CVS packages updated daily. Use it if you want to have always the most up-to-date stuff.
My unofficial repo contains CVS packages updated 1 to 3 times a month, and only packages for apps and libs whose code has actually been modified are rebuilt. Use it if you want to update E just from time to time.

I think I'll end up using yours as nickm's altough worked good on my last installation is just painfully slow. And i noticed some stuff missing from the community one.

Thanks. wink

I'll go with Nickm's, I think, since it has Elation, Euphoria, and of course e17genmenu. Problem is, NickM has a really, really annoying habit of removing packages from his DB if they aren't updated to the same version number as all the others. :evil:

I agree that nickm's repo should be e17-cvs, i was having this issues and ended commenting community first and nickms later, so, i had to dual pacman -Syu.

Also, if the community is to be made official someday, why it has so few parts of E17? are the snapshots at freedesktop.org considered more stable or something?

Good point... E17 is supposed to be a light desktop environment, like XFCE, as opposed to a WM with modules. When E17 goes official, there will be a lot more than what's in the AUR...

I suppose they will add more snapshots on enlightenment.freedesktop.org in the future - at least the engrave library, e_utils and e_modules would be useful. I don't want to add CVS packages to Community.
