What exactly does the pamac-mirrorlist-timer do?

I update my mirrorlist regularly with
sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu, after I have previously selected the mirrors for my country. I guess this concerns pacman, not pamac, right? But then what does the pamac-mirrorlist-timer do additionally? Does it mess up the mirrorlist, which I created, in regular indifference to the defaults of others again?

It regenerates the mirror list weekly.


Description=Generate mirrorlist weekly

OnCalendar=Thu *-*-* 7:00:00



Description=Generate mirrorlist

ExecStart=/usr/bin/pacman-mirrors -f8

So you can save the manual editing because it becomes pointless?

No, just disable the timer for your use case:

$ systemctl disable pamac-mirrorlist.timer

no reason to do if the pc does not travel

you can also change one service (persistent after pamac update)

sudo systemctl edit pamac-mirrorlist.timer  # for change OnCalendar date
sudo systemctl edit pamac-mirrorlist.service # for change params
