My main motivation was for what's listed in the AUR helper wiki, but you're right that just having the package available here or on github doesn't harm anyone. I've just proposed to remove stale entries from the tables in that article instead. [4] Thanks.

@Alad, I don't follow. Do you want me to take this package down? Delete the code off GitHub? Is its presence somehow causing pain somewhere?

Thanks for those links though, aurutils has some really cool ideas, though a few rough edges and a steep learning curve, IMO.

To be blunt, what's the reason to keep using this one? It performs poorly compared to most if not all other AUR helpers [1], has no unique functionality of its own, and encourages brittle practices like sourcing PKGBUILDs [2] over using SRCINFO and the RPC, which have existed since 2012. [3]

Thanks yusefmhg, I've added an Issue on GH: https://github.com/pbrisbin/aurget/issues/51

Please track progress there.

I believe there's a bug. When installing a package with a special character in the name (like bisonc++), the tarball can't be retrieved. Seems the problem is the subroutine url_encode being applied twice on the url (which causes the + character to be replaced for %%2b instead of %2b).

Nice AUR helper. Thank you brisbin33.

The --pkg error should be fixed in 4.7.1

Please see the commit message for important implications to split packages:

The version 4.7.0-1 failed to make packages in my case.
Something with makepkg and improper parameter '--pkg'.

Thanks, I think the v5 RPC interface is working in 4.7.0. Please open GitHub issues if not.

aurweb 4.2.0 was released and it includes a new RPC interface, see https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/aur-dev/2016-February/003993.html
