    Default force system updates to use packman repos

    Hey

    So, I was wondering on the updater service slowly over time installing packages overtop packman packages.

    For example, some multimedia guides mention to switch all packages to a certain repository like packman. At some point afterwards system updates will overwrite these.

    I don't fully understand how updates work, however, is it needed or possible to set a rule for which repos are used as a reference for system updates?

    If you have use the system switcher like this:

    or
    ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

    It should hold thru updates
    If it doesn't, try changing packman to a higher priority Eg 10
