@SanskritFritz: Suggestions for improvement are not meant as troll food.

@nonerd: Would be useful if you actually did maintain at least one package for reference we all could learn from.

Would be more useful when listing package dates and supporting a --date option.

I think it's fixed. Sorry!

Ah crap, I do less testing on the bash-completion since I'm a zsh user. Let me see if I can figure it out...

I'm getting this with the newest version:

-bash: /etc/bash_completion.d/downgrade: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `;;'
-bash: /etc/bash_completion.d/downgrade: line 5: ` COMPREPLY=($(compgen -W "$(pacman -Qqs "^$cur")")) ;;'

Dropped v5 -- greatly simplified and thus changed usage. See man downgrade for details.

I'd love to give downgrade some sort of --provider option or maybe just use an ARM_SOURCE environment variable, but the alternate sources would have to offer the same interface as the current source.

Do you know what kind of interface/API iprimus is offering?

I'm not sure how easy it would be to adapt the program for (and not sure it has a built-in search function), but seems to have a good selection of old packages, which a lot of the newer ARM clones are still lacking.

Issue : downgrade does not work when multiple dirs is used in CacheDir in pacman.conf. Also reported on github.
