Good morning devs,

just a comment from a complete archlinux newbie:

I'm not sure what the aur-rules say about having a (more up-to-date)
package in aur in that repos, but in general:

  a) If having a package in both, a repo & aur, is not allowed:
     Depending on the server side
     implementation of the upload handling, it should be pretty easy to
     add a check there. And I think it would make much sense, to automate
     stuff that a human normally fails at and does not want to do.

  b) In any other case (uploading allowed in general or only for special reasons):
     Why not add a warning and refuse an upload of the same package by default,
     but allow --force-because-I-know-what-I-do-flag somewhere?

Threatening never makes you friends, Caleb.
