Archlinux has "official" repos: core, extra, community. These are
binary repos. And
there is a slackbuilds.org style repository called AUR, which has only
AUR has a voting system, and if a package has enough votes, than it is
moved to the community binary repo.

By the way one more nice thing in AUR, is that there is a "mini forum"
for every package,
where anybody can write, something like:
"Hey there is a newer version of this package, please update"
or a packager can report the status of the package:
"I know there is a newer version, but I have problems with it, please
be patient"
"I know there is a newer version, but the update would break another
package in the repo"

it would be nice to have something similar...
