Package Group Info

Hello Arch Users,

I want to find if there is a way to see the changelog of a Group Package. To see when new packages will insert to that group or old packages removed from that group.


Sorry for my English.

Regards.

Re: Package Group Info

Since groups are implemented as tags on the respective packages via the groups=() array in the PKGBUILD, your only option is to diff the pkgbuild or track changes as displayed via pacman's -i flag.

Re: Package Group Info

In theory you could grab db files from the archlinux archive and check the package metadata in databases from different dates. This would be fine for checking the difference in group memberships between two selected dates, but it'd be highly impractical for generating any long-term changelog.
