This proposal should be the signal that we are going to start taking
votes more seriously, but no packages will be removed for now.

Good to hear!

Here's a little script to help figure out what's installed from a
particular repo. Use `repo-installed community` for [community], etc.
This'll help people figure out what to vote for.

-------------- next part --------------
# Print a list of packages installed from a given repo.
# Not everything will be listed if your installed packages
# are out of date.
# This will work for most standard installations.
# If you have an exotic setup just edit pacmandb.
# Usage: repo-installed <repo>


if [ -z "$1" ] ; then
	echo "Please specify a repo."
	echo -e "\tUsage: $0 <repo>"
	exit 1

installed=($(/bin/ls "$pacmandb/local"))

for pkg in ${installed[@]}
	if [ -e "$pacmandb/sync/$1/$pkg" ] ; then
		echo $pkg
