Request the addition of a package to the Manjaro repos here. Be aware: unless there’s an obvious need (or e.g. the package is unique) the answer will probably be “no”, and especially so if it’s already in the AUR.
Maintaining packages take a lot of time. Adding a package is not a one-off event and requires work by the package maintainer. Therefore, unless the package maintainer uses the software it’s very unlikely they will maintain a new package.

- niche (e.g. scientific software)
- proprietary or restrictive license
- old, outdated, unmaintained, AUR package
- high-frequency/daily updates (e.g.
- unreleased/pre-release software
