There are some upcoming changes to the Arch repos that everyone should be aware of.
What is happening
Full details are in the link below but the most important note to be aware of is:
The [testing] repository will be split into [core-testing] and [extra-testing], the [staging] repository will be split into [core-staging] and [extra-staging]. The [community] repository will be merged into [extra] and will therefore be empty after the migration.
that could be misunderstood. The community repo will be empty after the migration, therefore no error message will be written. But it won’t be maintained as it is empty - it will only exist unmaintained until the dev’s decide to delete it.
Right. My point was that since it isn’t being immediately removed, people won’t start getting update errors right away. Additionally, since everyone should already have the extra repo, there should be no short-term impact.
is there a way to see the pacnew file again? pacdiff and meld tool removed it… I had some errors from line I shouldn’t have added… commented them out and its working okay but I would like to take a look again.
