I quit using it recently and I'd start using it again if more people
used it. Making it a default package would be a good way to draw
attention to it. But, there are a few issues:
- Any advice on how to filter torrented packages out of
transmission-remote-cli? Currently, they clog up the view! :)
- chmod /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ to 775 instead of 777 per Arch Wiki's
-- I can't think of a good reason it's not 775.
- pacman2pacman should meet some quality standards if it is to be
provided by default. Perhaps there is a reason, other than visibility,
that it is not used that much. Therefore, are there any security
weaknesses with its current implementation, apart from the point above?
