Thank you for your contribution!

There is an implicit dependency on base-devel for all AUR packages, so it's normal that you had to install it.


Note: Packages in the AUR assume that the base-devel group is installed, i.e. they do not list the group's members as build dependencies explicitly.

Thanks @Ashark. Well spotted. I've updated the description.

@Rhinoceros upstream readme says that it is also for wayland: simple drag-and-drop source/sink for X or Wayland. Can you update the description?

This package is out-of-date, but I have created a package consistent with the new upstream name of dragon-drop. I created a request nine days ago to merge the packages, so just waiting on that. In the meantime, I recommend migrating to dragon-drop.

@BachoSeven, I've migrated both packages to the new name, and they are just pending approval from a TU. The executable was originally just called dragon, which conflicted with KDE media player of the same name. The new name dragon-drop was suggested upstream, and this name had already been adopted by a few other distros. With the new version 1.2.0, the new executable name was easier to use, and I took this opportunity to change the package name as well.

@Rhinoceros What's the reason behind creating these dragon-drop{,-git} packages, since you had already uploaded the dragon-drag-and-drop{,-git} ones?

Edit: Asking out of curiosity

Thanks @FichteFoll, I hadn't seen that thread. I think I just made up dragon-drag-and-drop originally, but dragon-drop sounds much better, so I'm happy to change.

There is a discussion upstream about disambiguating "dragon" from the kde media player by renaming it to "dragon-drop" and the Makefile already supports this. You may be interested in picking that up or participating in the discussion as the AUR maintainer.

@crdx Hi, that makes sense. Thanks for your explanation :D
