unsupported and tu repositories

Tell me please, can I get access to unsupported and TU repositories through abs?

(PS - I saw qpkg and aurbuild)

Re: unsupported and tu repositories

No. Unsupported is not a full repo - it only provides PKGBUILDs and if necessary, associated build files, not compiled packages. Unofficial repos, TU or other, are not accessible with abs, just current, extra, unstable, testing, and community.

Re: unsupported and tu repositories

Does arch team plan to do it in future?

I think, it is not too convinient, because many usefull program are in aur/tu repositories.

Re: unsupported and tu repositories

TU repositories have been abandonned - if you find programs in the TU repos that are not in the AUR please move them.

If so, it's much better.

Count of tools to use repositories = 2 now :-)

abs+aurbuild

But TU repositories have binary packages, AUR as I understood does not have.

Re: unsupported and tu repositories

yeah but the TU's decide which ones of packages go to community which is a binary repo. it's supposed to go to community based on how many votes a package has but i hear rumours that the TU's just chooses whatever package smile (which is a good idea IMO i would have every package in aur into community smile)

AUR does have binary packages, the [community] repository is the AUR repository, its maintained collectively by the TUs (rather than each having an individual repo). Unsupported packages get adopted by TUs and put in community as they become popular (vote in AUR for your favourite packages) and as the TUs have the time.

And that's the reason why we have a vote-in process.  It has never caused a problems and the only major packages with alot of votes that are not in community are things that *can't* go into community (i.e. Cedega)
