    add extended data field for arbitrary package data · 3405709b
    Andrew Gregory authored and Allan McRae's avatar Allan McRae committed
    This adds a mechanism for package builders to add arbitrary data to
    packages that is not necessarily relevant enough to the package
    installation process to gain first-class support in alpm.  Currently
    these fields have to be added to parsers with a "not actually used"
    comment and can't be retrieved through the API.
    Extended data is stored in "name=value" format in the xdata field
    (%XDATA% in desc files):
    xdata = pkgtype=debug
