Great to know !

If you had "releases" on github, you could have two "PGKBUILDS" on AUR like many other tools.

A "catbin-git" and a "catbin". A "catbin-git" PKGBUILD will give you almost zero work to maintain.

A "catbin" as it is now (version 0.1 ?) also works fine.

That way you can relax and take your time to work more on catbin on github whenever you feel like. If those changes "deserve" a new "release" than in a couple of months/years you can make a new release and update the "catbin" PKGBUILD.

In the mean time, AUR users who choose the "catbin-git" PKGBUILD can give you back feedback about any of those changes.

Hey thanks for reminding me. I'll try to rename the package somewhere doing the weekend, I'll have to lookup the process for it. I'll also make sure the package the LICENSE and README.

Thanks for developing this tool and maintaining the PKGBUILD. Very usefull since there is no "fiche" PKGBUILD on the AUR. "fiche", is actually the tool that powers the website "". Last updated 2018.

Nice that you also shipped the systemd files. Very convenient

You should actually rename this PKGBUILD from





You are building it using "source=("git+" and not pulling a tar.gz release from github.

You could also improve the description,

Description:    A pastebin server meant for the terminal

You should add the "A clone" to the "Description" like you have on the README. And the word "netcat". On the AUR,it makes it easier to find and understand better what this tool is and does. My suggestion,

Description:    A pastebin server meant for terminal usage with netcat. Clone of fiche powering

You are missing the LICENSE that should end up in something like


Same for the usefull README
