Due to high maintenance cost of scripts related to the Arch Build System, we have decided to deprecate the abs tool and thus rsync as a way of obtaining PKGBUILDs.
The asp tool, available in [extra], provides similar functionality to abs. asp export pkgname can be used as direct alternative; more information about its usage can be found in the documentation. Additionally Subversion sparse checkouts, as described here, can be used to achieve a similar effect. For fetching all PKGBUILDs, the best way is cloning the svntogit mirrors.
So I just had an idea! (Which I guess is already kind of obvious since I am posting again)
Since internet is already needed to install within Cnchi, what if when one got to the “Where to install” option, a link to a page with instructions such as this one was provided so that users could have a built in guide
That way they wouldn’t have to scour the internet or anything.
It’s just an idea, but it sure seems like an easier work around than anything else I can think of (says the non-coder)
