I feel the need to point out this repo still has some of the same problems it did last time you posted this.
You are still putting compressed tarballs in github instead of the source directly. This makes changes much less transparent because it is difficult to see what changed.
Your version of mhwd is still pulling directly from the Manjaro source and as a result, only works on EOS where there is overlap in package names. It is quite literally broken.
If your key is available in the keyservers, why is there a need for installing a keyring package? Installing a 3rd party keyring package into your system requires a strong degree of trust in the issuer. Unless I am missing something you are giving yourself the right to add keys to system whenever the package is updated.
Here is the output that shows mhwd is broken

Until some of these issues are resolved, I would strongly recommend people think twice before adding this repo to their systems.
Hmm I thought there was some adaptation of those packages… simply taking Manjaro’s packages is not a good idea. On Manjaro you get a tonload of updates once a week or once every 10 days instead of the trickle-pace you get on EOS. This means there is always the possibility the Manjaro packages will not play nice with packages from EOS, since they are not in sync.
Personally I’d not use this repo. It’s one thing to add AUR packages to a repo and have them served the same way as official packages for convenience (not fumbling with AUR package managers), and another one to add foreign custom packages from other distros. Packages witch are distro-speciffic, instead of designed for general use.
Sorry @specialworld83, this repos simply does not look right to me. What I more strongly dislike is the name of the repo:
I’d reserve the EOS-repository for the official repository [if there’s ever going to be one] as a courtesy to the EOS devs and maintainers.
If I were to pick a name for my own custom repo I’d name it somewhat more creative like “Nate’s EOS Repo” or, if you really must, “Extreme-EOS-repo”, but not something that is exactly the name that the official repo would have.
The goal here is not the let anyone believe that this thing is officially sanctioned by EOS. Especially when there are some security and trust issues like @dalto mentioned. This proves good-faith and respect to the devs.
This being said, in the beginning I also felt the lack of an official Endeavour repo and missed it. Antergos had one and it was useful. However that also contributed to Antergo’s death. It takes time and commitment to properly and reliably maintain a repo.
Will that work? I would think you need pamac compiled as it is in Manjaro to support the plugin. Although, I have never actually tried it.
Alternatively, the AUR package pamac-aur has options that let you enable flatpak and/or snap support. Probably worth noting that pamac-aur-git does not offer this(although you could alter the PKGBUILD and add the flags for it).
I think they are customized with the exception of mhwd. I am guessing the settings manager was modified but finding the changes isn’t as easy as it could be because the source is added to github as a tarball.
As anyone can figure I’m a Manjaro fan, but I don’t think this is the right approach to bring some of their candy along to EOS. Open source is beautiful exactly because of the transparency and honesty it enforces.
I have a question regarding mhwd.
I noticed it installs video drivers like video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime or video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-430xx-bumblebee. Any idea what those are? Are they custom drivers by Manjaro? Something else? Are those accessible to EOS? video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime for example is extremely convenient, especially for new touring cards which support the latest power management features, thus making optimus, bumblebee or anything similar almost obsolete. But I couldn’t find any equivalent for EOS.
