1.9.0 is officially released and I've been using this for the past hour without any problems.

Having said that, feel free to blame me for any issues.

@forivall - My bad, I didn't check that wiki page, I should have. I'm actually using Manjaro-bspwm and didn't get all of those package installed with it.

@Vrakfall - All packages in the base-devel group should be installed when building _any_ packages, and are always assumed as makedepends - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Creating_packages#Prerequisite_software

Hello!

I feel like you should add `fakeroot` and `patch` to your depencies since they are used to build. ;D

Looks like this made it into the community repository:

@tuxayo - quote from maintainer regarding the license:

Google Analytics is not bundled with atom. The metrics package (
https://github.com/atom/metrics/blob/master/package.json) is. That one is
MIT licensed and depends on the node-uuid package (
https://github.com/broofa/node-uuid/blob/master/package.json), which is
also MIT licensed. That one calls the Google Analytics API over HTTP. The
MIT license allows that. Actually they could also include the
google-analytics.js code itself. It's possible to bundle differently
licensed code with your MIT licensed app, as long as the _other_ license
permits it and is also bundled with the code it concerns (by putting
everything in a sub dir). The MIT license allows just about everything,
except removing the MIT license file itself.

That said. As of now the metrics package asks on first start if the user
wants to enable the tracking or not (
http://blog.atom.io/2016/10/11/atom-1-11.html). Which it should have from
the beginning.

Hope that answers your question.

@ivan_p - Thanks for submitting your changes, they've been added.

@Chais - will have a look at switching from deb to tar.gz. It currently works, so is not a high priority.

Chais commented on 2016-11-06 15:46

This needs to be conflicting with atom as well. As an aside, why are you using the .deb instead of the .tar.gz?

Hey, I fixed this package a bit:
https://gist.github.com/ivanpu/31ce91095897741b47de8d1382525e9b

Fixes:
- merged 'conflict' arrays
- 'update-desktop-database' is managed by pacman hooks now

getzze commented on 2016-10-13 22:54

Updating the desktop database is done by pacman hooks, it should be removed from the .install file

grawlinson commented on 2016-10-13 19:46

@tuxayo Thanks for the question regarding incompatibility with MIT license, I'll bring this up with the package maintainers.

@samcv Thanks for submitting your changes, I'm pushing them to AUR shortly.
