This package is set to conflict with itself and cannot be installed using pacaur:

I'm not sure what happened with the Github api, but it returned the wrong version number a few days ago. If you receive an error stating that a newer version is already installed, just uninstall then reinstall this package.

The dependencies have been updated

gconf is an obsolete configuration database system. Brave does not have this dependency.

Does this package really depend on libgnome-keyring? I see a lot of other packages has replaced this dependency with org.freedesktop.secrets now (which gnome-keyring provides). This is also true when comparing to the package 'brave' here in aur.

The License has been updated. If your files do not pass the validity check, clear the aur helper cache and try again.

The LICENSE file was updated on November 4th in the Brave Github repository. See

The new checksum is 239dbc27d68e0a03e92c68fb746602d8183084c9624a533fe92a991b8a4658d5154c901ff64826992eabcf89a5b52cb32f9cf29fd25a42bef2b5d3932010d806

thanks for taking charge of the package after it becoming orphan. Unfortunately it failed to install:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums... ... Passed LICENSE ... FAILED ... Passed brave-beta-bin.desktop ... Passed braveAbout.png ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! Error downloading sources: brave-beta-bin

I solved it by downloading the snapshot, then "updpkgsums", "makepkg -s" and finally installing it with pacman.

I don't know much about how it works, but did you forget to update the files' hashes?

This package has been flagged out-of-date for more than 2 weeks and I requested for it to be flagged as orphan earlier this morning.

The v1 is out, and given how important it is to keep the browser updated, I'd like to know if you are planning to maintain this package or not.

Personally, I already updated it using your PKGBUILD, and I don't mind doing that every now and then, but maybe others might appreciate being able to just use the AUR helper.

I made a mistake on the last package update. When you update this package it might say that a file failed the validity check. If you receive this error, clear your AUR helper's cache and try again.
