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.
