A follow-up to the last message: a co-maintainer has been found.

Hello package users!

For the coming month or so, I don't have a machine on which I can build the package, which therefore means I can't update it to the latest version. Someone has already applied as a co-maintainer, but unfortunately has not continued communication after applying.

If I had a Docker based setup with an Arch image (including the loading of SSH keys) for building packages, then I'd be able to build the package and push the update, but this is a setup I neither have at the moment, nor is it something I have the time to take care of it now.

As said, in about a month this will no longer be a problem, but until that time I'm afraid you'll have to rely on modifying the PKGBUILD.

@deadpyxel thank you :-)

So, I tried my hand at it and got an updated build working. For the exercism-bin package, currently, the completion scripts are not inside the official tarball from their repo.

Below are the changes I made that got it back working. Not sure about what to do with the completion scripts at this moment.

Is there any good way for me to submit this proposal? I would fill an Orphan request but I don't know if that would be a good idea.

Even thought the 3.0.13-1 version is written out of date, it is possible to install this package with paru or yay, and then run the command sudo exercism upgrade which will upgrade this to the latest version directly (for me to the 3.1.0 version). You can test your version of exercism with exercism version.

@berquist Implemented. Thanks for the recommendation!

@berquist If that's the correct syntax, then yes, it should. This package used to be exercism-cli and changed to exercism-bin a commits ago.

berquist commented on 2019-12-24 14:17 (UTC)

Should the PKGBUILD have replaces=('exercism-cli')?

@linduxed Awesome :)
