Hey Leonidas,

I wish you good like as well. May the force be with you :D

For now I just have a tiny bit after reading through your mail:

Those are early access programs. We should not by default endorse a 
bleeding edge set in the official repos that are deemed purely for 
testing and feedback purpose rather than production usage.

JetBrains also marks them with a specific warning:
# This is an early access version of the product
# You expressly acknowledge that this version of the product may not be 
# reliable, may not work as intended and may contain errors. Any use of 
# the EAP product is at your own risk.

I'm not really fond of the idea to put them into our repos, the AUR is a 
quite good fit for it. Both are also just re-packaging the JetBrains 
dists so build time isn't really something to be concerned about. On top 
I see problems doing that with the JetBrains license issued for those 
two dists.
