Source packages are useful if one doesn't want to blindly trust binaries. Considering the tensions with Bitcoin in particular, I would understand that some people prefers that.

Git packages are useful to get the latest source code the release cycle is too short. It's also useful to the test the dev version and find bugs before they get to the release.

For now I'm letting this here to not loose the current PKGBUILD if someone wants someday to maintain it.

Maybe it's ok to delete this VCS package and just have a release package (bitcoin-unlimited). VCS packages are more useful when software is either very early in development or is very popular so users want the bleeding edge. Otherwise, it's probably not worth the effort to maintain two packages...

is anyone willing to maintain this package? I'm not using it anymore.

And now it works, using openssl-1.0

After some updates in Arch this week, it doesn't build.

I didn't have the time to troubleshoot that.

Here are some build logs with the errors for those interested.

edit: it seems it doesn't build with openssl 1.1.0

edit2: it will be supported soon! :) https://github.com/BitcoinUnlimited/BitcoinUnlimited/issues/503

@Spider.007 /srv/bitcoin doesn't belong to this package so I don't understand why uninstalling bitcoind-unlimited-git it would remove that folder.

Does anyone has an idea?

Spider.007 commented on 2017-03-24 08:33

When uninstalling or replacing this package it will remove your entire /srv/bitcoin directory; including 120GB of blocks, transaction meta-data and wallet.dat
Is this intentional?

Latest vulnerability has been fixed in the release branch.

Changing the package version and the branch=0.12.1bu → branch=release works to update the PKGBUILD

The current outdated version is not usable anymore:

My node crashed due to a SEGEV 12h ago, it might be due to the bug being exploited. And it looks like I was not alone: https://coin.dance/nodes/unlimited
