Just a heads up to anyone checking this out: while this nice little tool does still work, Arch Linux as a distro is in the process of adopting nvchecker support. This includes already having support in official package tools (e.g. pkgctl version check), upcoming support in archweb for automatically flagging all repository packages as OOD, and eventually the same tooling will be standardized for AUR packages too. Whether it will be optional or required for user contributed packages is yet to be decided of course, but folks should be aware that things are headed that direction.

⚠️ Leaving Arch Linux in November 2021 – I'll keep maintaining the project, but don't expect new features unless you are submitting a patch.

This package fails to build if LDFLAGS contains spaces due to missing quotes at https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=aur-out-of-date&id=5e517e5c7b01de05a8e7f6578ba1ceb0d5ed5a58#n27. It should be updated to follow the current Go package guidelines: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Go_package_guidelines#Flags_and_build_options

@alerque

Thanks for your usefull comment and hint about this kind of "tooling" and "machinery" in Archlinux.

Arch Linux as a distro is in the process of adopting nvchecker support.

Very interesting. I had no idea that such "things" even existed.

... eventually the same tooling will be standardized for AUR packages too.

Yeah. Actually I just landed here today, because I do a lot of "work" checking for out of date, unmaitained AUR stuff. And searched the wiki for some kind of "helper" tool.

I was getting tired of manually:

  • inspecting the AUR page and "last update date" too see if it loooks "suspicious old".
  • visit or clone the github repo or releases page.

Even doing it from the command line with curl, AUR helpers, the github-cli tool etc. it gets tiring. And doesnt "scale" to the torrent of stuff, old and new, living on the AUR

...but folks should be aware that things are headed that direction.

Very good news.

Whether it will be optional or required for user contributed packages ....

Hope so. This is badly needed for purging the AUR of crap, outdated, abandoned, unmaitained stuff.

... is yet to be decided of course ...

Where are these "discussions" taking place ? Some mailing list ? The forums ? Where can I get more information ?

Appreciate if you could give some more pointers, tips on how to cope/deal with this challenge.

This, challenge/problem, that is, the one of making sure or minimizing the chances that you let too much old crap from the AUR stay in your your system. Assuming of course all other recommendations from the wiki are followed. That is, "assume the risk", "read the source", manually review the PKGBUILD.

I am interested in stuff catering more for the casual/volunteer Arch home user.

Not so much stuff catering for Arch TU/infrastructure/industrial setup/maintainers.

Found this with hinsightfull comment by Foxboron, but is from 2019, https://redlib.ducks.party/r/archlinux/comments/da3p72/aur_version_checker

PS: Another one that probably should be removed from the AUR (and Wiki) https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pkgbuild-watch,

This "aur-out-of-date" go tool itself doesnt look very fresh either,

I did rebuild aur-out-of-date, but still the same. Is anyone else experiencing this?
