Thanks for the hint. I guess there is no good reason to stick to python2. I updated the packages accordingly.

The official package has moved from Python 2 to Python 3. [1] How about doing the same for this package?

Please switch to the certbot-git package [1]!
Let’s Encrypt is in the transition of being renamed to (probably) certbot. Although until now (2016-04-18) there is no new version available with this name, it is still already being used at the master branch of the git project [2]. The change was announced a couple of weeks ago at their blog [3] unfortunately the sudden rename at github is not mentioned there. Since this package fetches the last revision from github it is already affected by this name change.
The new package [1] is a complete redesign and should be much more lightweight. Furthermore I have splitted the package into several small one, to give you more control over which plugins or helpers you actually want to use.
As always you can track any progress at my github repo [4].

I am still pretty cautious about adding a service and timer file for this program since it is not contained in the github repo itself and would therefore require a patch for a package which is just working fine. The developers are already aware of this issue [0] and currently there is no real need for it because the certificates are valid for 3 months.
I believe that this should be added upstream I am currently against fixing it down the line since I assume it to be implemented within the validity of your first certificate.

FYI, it is possible to create a service + timer file to renew automatically the certificates using webroot.

@edh Thanks, my mistake on the oversight. Looks great.

edh commented on 2015-12-06 11:54

Both letsencrypt-apache and letsencrypt-nginx are provided by this package and from now on even letshelp-letsencrypt. However this was not clearly stated in the PKGBUILD but thanks to your reminder it should be fixed now.

Provides doesn't seem to be right. letsencrypt-nginx won't install as long as letsencrypt-git is installed rather than letsencrypt.
