You're right. I've made a note of it and will move the pages when I finally have time to release the refactored backend. I doubt that I will include a section 8 man page through because the argparse library does a good enough job documenting the extra options (without needing to keep two documents in sync) and the rest emulate pacman.

Thanks for pointing out the error.

powerpill.json manpage should be located on section 5 instead of section 1, according to intro(1) and intro(5).

It would be better to include a manual page for powerpill command in section 8, though.

I have updated pm2ml to fix the problem. Thanks for the notification.

I have been gradually working on a new backend for a while. It is available for testing here[1]. It is not entirely backwards-compatible so please give it a try now and get ready to migrate your configuration files and scripts. Extension developers are most welcome :D.

Please keep related discussion in the forum thread.

Failed how? Did it complain about an unknown signing key? If so, that's because you need to import the key yourself to your personal keyring (not the pacman keyring). Examples of how to import the key are posted in comments on my other packages packages. Check the wiki as well.

Failed to verify python3-xcgf, python3-memoizedb, python3-xcpf, pm2ml, and powerpill integrity :/

I fixed the issue I was having by updating my rsync servers. I just wrote a script for automating that weekly.

The git update URL gives 404, I guess it's out of date.

Not having any problems, zerophase
