      I understand all that.  I was coming at it from the viewpoint that if AUR works for a rolling release model, it should work very well for fixed point releases.  Debian is so overzealous about not including open source software in repos.  But if the point of Linux is freedom of choice, some of us choose software that doesn't meet Debian's lofty standards.  Wouldn't it be nice if we had a Debian User Repository (DUR....sounds about right?!) for those offerings that Debian does not, and will never support.   A good example....nVidia drivers.  If someone compiled a proprietary nVidia package for Debian, wouldn't it be nice if less technically inclined users could install also?

      The AUR is kind of like PPAs but with more control. They both allow you to add software that are not in the official repos but they are also very different.
