In the Arch Linux standard packages, does devtools include git or do I need to install git separately?

How can I figure out the answer to similar questions on my own?

The devtools package description shows that devtools depends on git; so while it doesn’t include git, installing it will result in git being installed too.

To answer this kind of question yourself, look the package up in the Arch Linux package database. This will show you the package’s availability, its dependencies, and the files it contains.

  • pacman can tell you this, you don't need a website: pacman -Si devtools – jasonwryan Jan 4 at 18:00
