    https://github.com/jordansissel/fpm is another good tool to convert packages:

    Sources:

    gem (even autodownloaded for you)
    python modules (autodownload for you)
    pear (also downloads for you)
    directories
    tar(.gz) archives
    rpm
    deb
    node packages (npm)
    pacman (ArchLinux) packages
    Targets:

    deb
    rpm
    solaris
    freebsd
    tar
    directories
    Mac OS X .pkg files (osxpkg)
    pacman (ArchLinux) packages

    This is very interesting to me. The most important thing to me has always been access to the most apps. It’s why we run OSes, afterall. I’m a DEB user but have heard about Arch and some of it’s offshoots. I believe there is good work being done on rolling releases, which is something I’m increasingly interested in.

    Would you know (based on your research) if the conversion success rate for DEBtap is 100% or close to it?

    Thanks, the vscode package at AUR is failing to compile, so I use debtap to convert the vscode downloaded from the website and this worked like a charm.
