Development is quite fast-paced, with a new
release every few weeks, often bringing big changes. api, config
syntax etc are definitely not stable yet.
It makes maintaining packages a bit more work, but IMHO it doesn't
change anything to the pro's and cons of official binary packages vs git
packages in AUR, so I think a binary package is useful.
But Bīru has told me he wants to maintain packages in community, so my
problem is solved.
