    The Void source packages collection

    I don't want to alter existing packages but to define my own packages. I have a PR for ArxLibertatis that has been sitting there for months. If I could just set up my own repo with custom recipes I would not have to bother with all that manual repo maintenance (pull latest changes from master, rebase my branch, rebuild packages).

  • gemrb

    GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of Bioware’s Infinity Engine.

    Recently I was unable to update my system packages (xbps-install -Su) because my custom-built GemRB package was causing some Python problems. Hence why I would have to rebuild packages from time to time. Maybe it would be better to say two parallel sources of packages rather than two package systems.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
