And one long weekend later and we have "archlinux-contrib" in [community]!
There are currently a few scripts available.
Originally writen by seblu, and commited to contrib by Giancarlo, it checks
which services needs to be restarted after packages have been updated.
It queries archweb and helps you figure out which of your packages has how
many co-maintainers. It's useful in the case where you are going on vacation
and want to produce a list of packages which currently only has you as the
Helps you download PKGBUILDs from an AUR maintainer. This is useful if you
want to review TU candidates.
Aids security team members composing the advisory email locally.
Checks stdin for CVEs and cross-checks with our security tracker if they
have been added or not. Useful if you are looking over oss-security emails
svenstaro also wrote a `offline-build` tool that went into contrib. Eli polished
it and moved it to devtools after some work. Jelle also has a pull-request
working on "repo-sec-checker" checks if there are binaries in a package/repo
which does not have the appropriate security hardening applied.
It should be noted that all of this is currently being packaged to
`/usr/share/archlinux/contrib` as it seems like an better idea to not clutter
peoples paths with misc tools.
I'll be super happy if people contribute other misc scripts, and everyone that
wishes will be added to the github org and can handle pull-requests.
