Ah, these are generated by a script, so no maintenance effort on my side :)

While bumping the pkgver and rebuilding I realized, that in line 60 of the current PKGBUILD the pkgver is hardcoded again. I'd suggest using the existing $pkgver variable there. This reduces maintenance burden on you and makes the PKGBUILD more error prove for pkgver bumps.

It'll work fine against Ruby 2.7, just it'll spew a ton of deprecation warnings and we didn't yet run CI against it. So for the moment I'd like to keep it as is. I bumped the ruby2.6 package to the 2.6.10 release but dropped maintainership afterwards again since Ruby 2.6 is EOL and will see no more release after this.

Ruby2.6 is an orphan now, is it safe to switch to ruby2.7 (or even ruby3)?

libffi updated and no longer provides which diaspora demands; symlinking to .so.8 bothers it because it fails to find some LIBFCLOSURE=7.0 or something inside.

Thanks for the comprehensive reply, makes all sense now.

I wasn't sure how backup would deal with removing a file so I kept it in there for the benefit of the doubt. Note that the toml was added too.

There's no straight forward converter, I would recommend to apply the settings to the new file manually with a side by side view with the yml. Meanwhile you can still re-create the symlink to /usr/share/webapps/diaspora/config/diaspora.yml and it'll continue working until 0.8, I just couldn't think of a good way to keep this in the package without superfluous and confusing deprecation warnings for users that chose to migrate.

I don't think references to $srcdir in such auxillary files is a real issue. I won't bother with cleaning this up, if you find a good and maintainable way, contributions welcome :)

Please always ignore each and every non-error messages from bundler, diaspora developers take care of those :)

Thank you for the update. It has a few issues, however:

  • etc/webapps/diaspora/diaspora.yml has been renamed to diaspora.toml, but the backup entry in the PKGBUILD is still the yml file. How to convert existing yml to toml by the way?

  • some files contain references to the $srcdir, but upon inspection these seem pretty unnecessary. Among these files is a Makefile for ruby_http_parser and som gem_make.out files seemingly containing log information from the gem compilation. Can these safely be deleted?

  • There are concerning post-install messages from the gems 'encryptor' and 'attr_encrypted' dealing with security implications. Are these safe to ignore?

Thanks for maintaining this software and making it available in the AUR. Much appreciated!

Hey, I just updated the package to 0.7.14 and thus Ruby 2.6. Does this still happen for you?
