#StackBounty: #github #pacman #msys2 Install paccache in Msys2 to clean installers storage

Bounty: 100

I mean to get rid of a large number of probably useless installers (I have currently 3.5Gb “immobilized”) from my Portable Msys2 under Win10.
I will probably keep the last version, at least of some installers.

To do this, I mean to install paccache.

$ pacman -S paccache
error: target not found: paccache

OTOH, I found
https://github.com/Alexpux/MSYS2-pacman/blob/master/contrib/paccache.sh.in

How should I use this paccache?

Using paccache is equivalent to

$ cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
$ rm python3-pip-10.0.1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
$ rm ...

in a more versatile/fine-tuned way, or does it perform any additional action?
