@dtcooper Who are you and what are you trying to do here? Because you are looking incredibly suspicious right now.

  1. The user bpc-clone has a hidden profile and has no apparent links whatsoever to the original author.
  2. You claimed in the out-of-date flag "Per maintainers twitter, new versions can be found". The maintainer's twitter account, as given by the project homepage, is @iamadamdev, on which I can find so such tweet.
  3. All 4 repos under the user bpc-clone contains no actual source code. They claim that "for source code see zip-file in releases", which couldn't sound more questionable.

Please respond in a timely manner and explain yourself. Or else I will treat this as a supplychain attack attempt and report it as such.

@Gerry do you plan to continue to maintain this package? If not, I would like to offer to (co)?maintain, thanks.

I verified the sha256sum, and it works fine for me. Tested the build and install, works as well.
