  Description     : minimalist package manager using tarballs and scripts
 Pacman is a package manager typically used by ArchLinux and similar
 distributions. It features a simple design which is easy for packagers
 to create functional packages with, and utilizes a simple tarball-based
 package format.
 .
 Using Pacman directly will bypass the Debian packaging system, and
 therefore is not recommended. The recommended use of this package is
 for bootstraping ArchLinux chroots.

This package is being packaged to facilitate support for ArchLinux and other
pacman-using distributions as ApplianceKit guests (for both vserver and xen
installations).

Is there any progress on this? Now that libdownload>=1.3
and libarchive>=2.6 are in the Debian archive, pacman can
be easily packaged.

Also the pacman package in Arch Linux depends on the
pacman-mirrorlist package which contains a list of the mirrors;
Debian probably doesn't need to package this.

Pacman 3.3.0 is now out depending on libfetch and libdownload >= 2.7.0.
The dependency on libfetch can be removed by passing
--disable-internal-download to the configure script.

Any update on this? It's been over a year!
Is there a git repository or a debian package that we could try? Thanks. :)

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of pacman-package-manager back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting pacman-package-manager, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 511994 ITP: pacman-package-manager -- minimalist package manager using tarballs and scripts
 owner 511994 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <511994@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
