'core' is most trusted as it needs signoffs for being published to
stable download locations. The others are supervised by Trusted Users
and don't need signoffs.
The difference between extra and community is not all that clear.
And what makes things difficult is when a package (cmake) in extra
needs a package in community (rhash). I was pointing that out
upstream and I got the confirmation that they don't make extra
checks that a package in 'extra' doesn't depend on things in
So, C/make projects can be built with Arch_Core, but a C++/Cmake
project needs Arch_Community.
So, actually people should be able to choose between Arch_Core,
Arch_Extra and Arch_Community and they have to pick the right repo.
