If you want to suggest an improvement or report a bug and have GitHub account, I would prefer you to use GitHub issues for this (see "Upstream URL" for repo link). I watch this discussion too but GitHub has much more options.

I would prefer to discuss here suggestions about package itself.

Very nice, much better than archnews original.

I agree "archnews_wrap" is not a good name, it does not mean to be. In manual page I suggest to do alias pacman='archnews_wrap' to never forget to check news before upgrading. If you don't like it, you can create "pacan" symlink.

In the end I located config file in $HOME/.config directory, /etc did not even came to my mind. But global config would be also useful, I agree. So maybe in the next version :)

Thanks to your job.
A simple solution is a config file in /etc (some backup tools make a backup of only this directory, see etckeeper) for example /etc/archnews2/archnews_wrap.conf and in this file you write the default option PACWRAP=/usr/bin/pacman and the end user can change it to pacaur, yaourt, ecc...
A best name for the wrapper is "pacan" (Pacwrap+ArchNews) it is more fast to write then "archnews_wrap"

I just pushed a version 1.2.0. New archnews_wrapper backend might be configured like this now:

sudo bash -c "echo 'ARCHNEWS_PACKAGE_MANAGER_FULL_PATH=/usr/bin/pacaur' > /root/.config/archnews_wrap_conf.sh"

Other option is set env variable ARCHNEWS_PACKAGE_MANAGER_FULL_PATH directly. See `man archnews` for more details.

Hello GFdevelop, thank you for your feedback. I can add some configuration file for wrapper. I am thinking whether enviromental variable will be enough or I should use regular config file.

useful package, I have changed pacman with pacaur in the wrapper, you have to add a configuration file to add more tool for example pacman, pacaur, yaourt, etc...
