In the .srcinfo:

pkgver = 5.00
pkgrel = 3

but in the PKGBUILD:

_pkgver='5.00';  _dl='0/0100005950/10'
pkgver="${_pkgver}"
pkgrel='1'

please can you fix the 'pkgrel'?

Thanks! I hope now it's fixed.

Thanks for adding the names of previous contributors, but you should put your own name back as maintainer and on first line.

Change maintainer on the lines with severach and my name to contributor, then the PKGBUILD gives the correct impression .

I looked a bit further and now understand this does seem to be a different driver, the name you choose does match with the contents of the source file.

The other things I mentioned still stand.

Maybe I can help to find a better choice for upstream url, which printer has this been tested with ?

This package was made for itself first, since 5.10 is not suitable for my printer. In this case, another version of the driver (sfp) is required. At the end, I just posted what I did in the hope that someone would use it.

When someone uses a PKGBUILD from AUR as the starting point for their own, a start for a new to start their own package best practice is to keep the list of previous contributors . Why did you remove those lines but made very few other changes ?

This package builds an older version of the cnrdrvcups-lb package maintained by myself and severach, as such it should be named cnrdrvcups-lb5 or similar to make clear it's basically the same package, just an older version. Why did you choose to name it cnrdrvcups-sfp ?

The upstream url in my package was chosen specifically to provide info about the driver. People that start on the toplevel canon europe site will have a hard time finding relevant info about it, why didn't you choose a meaningful url like that ?

If you had issues with the 5.10 version , why did you start a new package without posting anything ?
