I honestly don't know how one would do it elegantly - but the package should have qtkeychain as a mandatory dependency if it was built with qtkeychain support, and not have qtkeychain as a dependency at all otherwise. qtkeychain is indeed an optional dependency for drawpile when building it, but it is either a mandatory one or not a dependency at all once it's built (depending on whether it's built with or without it).

All things considered, maybe it should simply be a mandatory dependency - consider that Drawpile behaves weirdly without keychain support (it shows the "remember password" checkbox but it doesn't do anything when it's checked).

I get you but I'm not sure if that's how it's supposed to be. Drawpile can work perfectly fine without qtkeychain, is it an optional package? is it a forced depencency? I read the guideliness and the wiki and it's not very clear to me.

If you run makepkg with qtkeychain-qt5 installed, it will build Drawpile with keychain support. The resulting package won't have qtkeychain as a dependency, yet as an optional dependency. If you then install it on a system without that package, Drawpile won't run.

qtkeychain is in the optdepends. I don't understand the request. All optdepends will become required wherever you move a built package to install.

I'd like to point out that if you build this package with qt5-qtkeychain installed (in order to have "remember password" support) it won't work on a system that doesn't have it installed (missing shared object).

Maybe this package should have qt5-qtkeychain as a dependency whenever it's built with that package installed?

Alright, next release.

hello, could you update links to https?

Server fixed, I forgot to comment

I pushed a fix. Unfortunately I can't get the server to compile so it's been disabled for now. I didn't up the version, I don't want the people who have the working server to lose it.
