Userrepository using mirrors

For a few months, I considered using the mirror service from Fosshost in userrepository.eu. The service results from a partnership between Fosshost and Fastly, giving projects access to several PoP’s around the globe. Finally, a few days ago, I enabled the service.

The package has all the instructions for enabling the mirrors and what to do if you already have userrepository in your /etc/pacman....

Updates to Jarvis, my Arch buildbot

My Arch buildbot, Jarvis, received an update today in the options logic. Now, it can receive an argument in the add (-a) and delete (-d) options, so the user can specify the package to add or delete.
