repro is intended to be a tool for users to verify packages distributed by Arch Linux.

The current goals are:

  • Recreate packages given a .BUILDINFO file, or .pkg.tar.xz
  • Download and verify needed packages from
  • Be a simple and easily auditable code
  • Distribution independent. One should be able to verify Arch packages on Debian.

Work in progress. Please read the code before using.
