AH, I see. And I can see you have more than a spurious interest in doing so. I notice on your GitHub link, that if you click on your name, goto Public Activity, there is an RSS feed. Does/would that help? Minorly distracting.

For me, a good indica works wonders on OCD stuff, but I live where it is legal medicine.

I get emails for every comment on the issues I contributed to. So, I could check emails at the end of a day. Perhaps, I shouldn't obsess over when exactly certain packages appear on unstable since I learned from this thread that unstable branch is updated on every mirror quite frequently anyway.

Just download that bluez package from unstable repo and install it offline into your stable Manjaro installation, pacman will tell you that your local bluez is newer than the repo, when bluez in the repo is newer than your manually installed bluez, pacman will update if for you.

That sounds ok.

Being able to predict when certain package would be available on unstable helps collaborate on package issues like https://github.com/manjaro/packages-extra/issues/63 as smoothly as possible.

Ah! This makes sense. In which case, the fastest way to get package update notifications is the packaging mailing list: https://lists.manjaro.org/pipermail/manjaro-packages/ .

Nice, to install it offline, do
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U /path/to.tar.gzAnd don't forget to mark this thread as solved. :)
