I am trying to study the source code of popular packages as a learning method.
I am running Manjaro 0.8.13, and it says it is based on Arch Linux. I've used Arch before, so I know it has the ABS to get source code.

So, I looked for a way to use it on Manjaro but I didn't find anything similar other than the buildtree program from the manjaro-tools package.

I ran: buildtree -as to sync, and I found some *.set-patterned files but I didn't know what to do with them.

This is the documentation of manjaro-tools.

  • Most of it is on SourceForge. So you might want to ask another question like... How long until SourceForge works again? – mikeserv Jul 18 '15 at 8:53
  • I don't know what that means. – mikeserv Jul 19 '15 at 0:08
  • @mikeserv: I mean: Can't I even download the source code that is not hosted on SourceForge ? Or is the problem being the non-availability of ABS on Manjaro ? (sorry if my earlier comment wasn't clear, I deleted it). – Amr Ayman Jul 19 '15 at 5:45
  • Sure, I guess. If you can find it, download it. I only knew about the sf repo. – mikeserv Jul 19 '15 at 12:38

The sources for all Manjaro packages can be found on their github site
