Can anyone else take this package over, as it has been 6 weeks since being flagged ood?

The version is now 0.57.18. It seems that the building process have changed. PKGBUILD didn't work for the source for 0.57.18.

shillshocked: ArchlinuxCN is formed and maintained by a group of "unaffiliated individual Chinese Archlinux hobbyist outside the gov't". The main server of ArchlinuxCN is not based in China. For the software itself, the binary in the ArchCN repo (brave-bin) is grabbed directly from

Just FYI. It's up to you.

lilydjwg: Thanks for the heads up. To clarify, I was referring to the fact that the Chinese government routinely installs spyware into software and hardware manufactured in China. That doesn't fall under the same umbrella as an unaffiliated individual developer outside the government.

I wouldn't install any Chinese repository because they're far too easily infiltrated.

Now that this package doesn't even install (forcing us to use the Chinese-binary-only, potentially hijacked version), I will be abandoning this browser completely.

Hello, Brave does not want to compile because of the npm package. cordially.

shillshocked: did you know that there is an Arch dev (felixonmars) who maintains over one fifth packages (2960) in the official repos and is from China? You'd better uninstall Arch now so that you can trust your system.

Also notice that there are Chinese packagers for Debian too.

Hi Caleb, Thanks for taking this package over. Tried updating but threw an error:

install: cannot stat '': no such file or directory.

Just thought I'd let you know.

Best wishes, Podrig
