Copy built packages to /var/cache/pacman/pkg. Stolen from @fosskers’ aura. May take a longer while to do…

The more the merrier man. I always wondered why none of the other AUR helpers did this...

Maybe because of this:

[kwpolska@kwpolska-lin ~]% ls -l /var/cache/pacman
total 232
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 233472 Sep 21 16:16 pkg/

Owned by root. Thus, it would work only if PB was run as root. And it isn’t a thing I recommend. Thus, unable to implement with the current philosophy.

Also, I would have to implement magic to validate which file to copy. I remember that screenfetch-git (or something else?) failed to install with -i because of a version change somewhere in the process.

Closing this, unfortunately.

Ask for the password when copying the packages from /tmp? (opt-in for this behavior)

I think I might try to create a solution for doing a pacman -U myself rather than using makepkg -si, but that needs some work.
