There we go. Far from perfect, happy to hear suggestions from spirits of
Due to high maintenance costs of rsync server and scripts related to
Arch Build System, we have decided to deprecate the `abs` tool and rsync
as endorsed way of obtaining PKGBUILDs tree.
The `asp` tool, available in [extra], provides similar functionality to
`abs`. `asp export pkgname` can be used as direct alternative; more
information about usage can be found in [its documentation][asp].
Additionally Subversion sparse checkouts, as described [here][svn], can
be used to achieve similar effect. For fetching all PKGBUILDs, the best
way is cloning [svntogit][git] mirrors.
While `extra/abs` package has been already dropped, rsync endpoint will
be disabled by the end of the month.
