Hello AUR users,
In addition to pre-existing archives, we've introduced two new archives that can be used instead of bulk queries against the RPC.
- packages.gz - Listing of all packages separated by line break. - pkgbase.gz - Listing of all package bases separated by line break. - users.gz - Listening of all users separated by line break.
- packages-meta-v1.json.gz - A complete `type=search` formatted JSON package archive. - packages-meta-ext-v1.json.gz - A complete `type=multiinfo` formatted JSON package archive.
All archives support Last-Modified and ETag. Each archive is updated on a rough ~5 minute interval. For any bulk users of the RPC, we ask that you consider these archives as a solution to repeated searches or bulk multiinfo requests.
All archives are available for download at https://aur.archlinux.org/archive-name.gz
Using these archives will drastically help the AUR with the amount of traffic required for API clients. Particularly with clients who are able to query by themselves en masse.
We thank you all for contributing to the world of AUR and helping those who can use your maintained software as a result.
