- See this for info on installing licenses (that are already in the system via references in a PKGBUILD's license=) AND, perhaps more importantly where ALL license files should go !!
^^^^^ https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#license
- namcap suggests that the function of desktop-file-utils is already being done with makepkg..and in fact it is !! ie. listing it as a dep is not required IF you do this next item:
- hamradio-menus is NOT an optional dep *IF* you want this GUI based op to show up in the menus !!!

I've added hamradio-menus as an optional.
Still trying to figure out if desktop-file-utils is required.
Changed license to GPL3

Not sure about removing the COPYING file. I'd really prefer not to change the package or contents itself.

Also: - Please remove the COPYING file, as it is the standard GPL3 version. AND - update the license to GPL3.

Actually there *IS* a "menu item" installed for this program .... to 'see-it' this PKGBUILD should list 'hamradio-menus' as depends=

(Also, I believe 'desktop-file-utils' is depreciated as a depends=)

We cannot add this as we are not the maintainers of the original software. This would be a good comment for the upstream maintainer: http://intrepid.danplanet.com/mailman/listinfo/chirp_users

this is a GUI program, please consider including a freedesktop.org menu item.

Please report that issue to the upstream maintainer: http://intrepid.danplanet.com/mailman/listinfo/chirp_users

This no longer works as I understand due to an update to pyserial. I get the following message when trying to download from my Baofeng UV-5R:
ERROR: ----------------
ERROR: Clone failed: Failed to communicate with radio: 'Serial' object has no attribute 'setTimeout'
ERROR: --- Exception Dialog: Failed to communicate with radio: 'Serial' object has no attribute 'setTimeout' ---
