-bin - binary? usual package?


What is usual package? Packages that you compile yourself, I guess.

What is usual package?

AUR community repository?

AUR is just a repository of scripts. The only difference is that some scripts fetch latest git packages, some scripts fetch tagged packages or releases and some other scripts fetch already compiled binaries.

And it’s nice if you name first one -git, and last one -bin.

“package” and “package-bin” - the same?

You got it, pal. Just like ice and ice-cream.

Thanks and thank you!
