New Tool Promises to Help You Create Your Own Arch Linux Package Repositories

arch-ppa developer Ryan McGuire says that he created this utility to help the Arch Linux personal packaging ecosystem be more secure than it is right now via AUR (Arch User Repository), an officially recognized software repositories where anyone with the proper skills can upload new software and maintain it. As such, AUR comes with a big warning for those attempting to install any of the packages maintained there by users like you and me, that you’ll use the provided files at your own risk.
