In the case of Arch Linux the package is on the Arch User Repository,
not in the binary repos. It is a source package that allows the user to
change the configuration file before compiling. Its only use is to have
the files tracked by Pacman, our package manager, and possibly to be
warned of updates automatically for those who use scripts that do that.
