An new testing/unstable repo
So you may or may not have noticed al packages haven’t had an update in a while, this is because for the last while I’ve been using an unstable/testing repo to test out changes to packages.
Going forward packages will first sit here for a while to be tested before being released on the stable (existing) repo. The goal of this is to have the testing repo maintain the same level of quality and pre-upload testing as the main repo had, but after the initial startup, the main repo will become more stable as a result.
Those looking to add it and hop on the beta bus to help test can add the following lines to
[archlabs_unstable] Server = https://bitbucket.org/archlabslinux/$repo/raw/master/$arch [archlabs_repo] Server = https://bitbucket.org/archlabslinux/$repo/raw/master/$arch Server = https://sourceforge.net/projects/archlabs-repo/files/$repo/$arch Server = https://github.com/ARCHLabs/$repo/raw/master/$arch
Adding it above
[archlabs_repo] (as shown above) will have unstable take priority, adding below, and the stable repo takes priority, regardless of where it is same name packages of greater version will be grabbed from whichever repo has the latest version, however both can always be installed with
pacman -S repo/package_name
Along with this we have a new testing iso for those interested, this has the testing repo enabled by default
