I was reading "Arch Wiki" and felt curious about that difference
between extra and community repo.
Some packages, such as "meson" is in the "extra" repo, whereas "ninja"
is in "community" repo. The interesting fact is that - is an implicit
dependency to "meson". So why that is (ninja) in the community repo?
Also, some critical GNOME specific packages are part of the community
repo. Even, some compilers, like Haskell is also part of the community
repo. What is the exact difference between extra and community
I wonder, Is it really important to have that split?
