Is there a simple way to retrieve the source files that built a given
/usr/bin/* command (meaning also those placed there via AUR)? Is there a command I can issue through maybe a
pacman wrapper that would retrieve those files for me or is it mandatory that I google my way to a git page or maintainers page?
According to this question, I am looking for something similar to the
apt-get source command from debian based distributions. Likewise, according to this question,
abs) has the basis of this functionality with
asp export for core packages though does not extend to those which have been built from AUR.
I would like to begin contributing to the community and simplifying the process of inspecting AUR source files would go a long way to helping me choose an appropriate package for my skill level and expertise as I will likely be doing this dozens if not hundreds of times before finding a package that both needs my help and that I am interested in / capable of helping.
