As stated here : http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=21311
There is a little problem with the -Qm option. The string comparison is not strict enough. For example, if xarchive isn't in any repos, and xarchiver is in community, then pacman won't show xarchive as being a foreign package.
I was thinking about comparing the length of the strings first, before strstr. What about the conversion to uppercase? is it really needed?
