+1 Great idea! (one of those why didn't that ever occur to me things)... My only question is, Allan, if you've been thinking of this for a while, why are you hesitating to implement it? And what can we as TUs do to help see this come to fruition/make the transition easier?
I imagine he's been hesitant since it's a pretty massive task. As long as nobody pulls a bfinch on us we could probably make this idea reality.
Has that term been coined as an official TU catchphrase? "Pulling a bfinch?" :P
My main thinking in the past was to unify the tools used for the "official" and community repos. That either involved fixing the community/AUR integration to use the new official devtools or split community and the AUR completely. If we split them, then we (being devs and TUs) need to decide whether the community packages get shown on the main Arch package page or are kept separate. As Callan put it, a big change with lots of planning needed...
