Slightly off-topic but still related: seems that some Antergos packages that override upstream packages are not adequately updated.
For example, packages atril, curl, lightdm-webkit2-greeter, mate-icon-theme, broadcom-wl, xed and dropbox are not up to date. I have no idea why.
As it happens, for dropbox I wrote a new PKGBUILD in https://github.com/manuel-192/dropbox-latest/blob/master/PKGBUILD and that helps keeping the dropbox package automatically and always up to date. No need for the dev to do anything when new dropbox version is available.
These and maybe some other more recent upstream packages are blocked by /etc/pacman.conf since Antergos repo precedes (obviously for a reason) the upstream repos. But blocking upstream packages may also cause problems, as we have seen in the past too.
So I tested moving the Antergos repo after the upstream repos, and some (previously blocked) packages were immediately updated by sudo pacman -Syyuu. So far I haven’t noticed any problems with that move. But that may be caused by the fact that I’m using Xfce which is not often updated.
Anyway, that leads to the idea that Antergos should block less upstream packages, unless there is a real reason for it. And if Antergos specific packages are required, they should be named in a way that does not block upstream packages, if possible.
Could @developers comment on this?
