I wrote a script, which you can read here:
If there are no objections, I would add a daily cronjob to my user's
crontab which runs this script for testing,core,extra,community,unstable
for both architectures. The filelist for extra is about 2.7MB gz-compressed.
This would at least allow advanced users to download these file lists
and use zgrep to search for files.
I would love to see options to sync and search those file lists in pacman.
IMO, it should be possible to configure the following in pacman.conf:
- Always sync the filelists with -Sy for offline use
- Sync the filelists only on demand (when pacman -So is called and they
are out of date)
