BitTorrent may be the most important protocol for you but it cannot be considered this application's primary purpose.

More importantly, stating "does not make sense" is pretty pointless without naming alternatives. Did you read the explanation in the commit messages why I've disabled BitTorrent?
Unlike the latest commit message suggests FatRat upstream still isn't adjusted to libtorrent-rasterbar 1.1.x. Series 1.0.x still suffers from a rather important security hole as the corresponding fix hasn't made it into a release yet. Btw. I've asked for this in
So instead of complaining you could e. g. replace your package libtorrent-rasterbar-109 with something more recent including the security fix. This would allow for re-enabling BitTorrent in this package in a reasonable way.

Disable torrent function (-DWITH_BITTORRENT=OFF) in primary torrent download manager does not make sense ...

please change dependency from "libtorrent-rasterbar<=1:1.0.9" to "libtorrent-rasterbar-109" (only until time when will be supported newest version of libtorrent)

So I asked the author about those address woes:
To no surprise still is the official homepage, lacking availability was just a server issue. Regarding the Git repositories both can be used, the one on GitHub being the more reliable one in the long run.
Adjusted PKGBUILD accordingly. Hopefully all jimmies are unrustled now.

Yes, I thought that the url is a problem. Right url is on github. Lubos Dolezel is my buddy, so this I know.

And other his projects have been moved to github too, for example Darling, Twinkle etc.:

So, please change it in PKGBUILD.

It's true that isn't accessible since some days. But this looks rather like a server problem, it's still stated as official homepage on and similar subdomains like are still active as well.
The web interface of isn't working either atm but the actual repo still does.
All in all I'd agree that both URLs are something to keep an eye on but don't see the need to change anything so far.

What exactly makes you think this package is out-of-date? If you've got the URLs in mind see my notes above. Also, these aren't covered by that flag at all. As for the actual package version you are aware it's derived by pkgver() in PKBUILD (which is common practice regarding VCS packages in AUR)?

Sources moved to github -

Please change the source=() line in the PKGBUILD to source=("git://")

Also, the project website at is inaccessible.
