@petrmanek Interesting. Is reachable for you? The URL in your snippet successfully links to the fish completion file for me.

@goll This should be fixed now.

@ogarcia All right! Planning to change that soon. Created an issue for it over at gitlab/timvisee/ffsend.

@timvisee this package must be renamed to ffsend-bin since is based in a binary source file (and have a valid sha256sum). The package that you called ffsend-git must be this package. If you want to maintain a ffsend-git then the source must be the git master branch, not a tag archive and have pkgver() function. You can look my package numix-cursor-theme-git as sample of a -git package.

@physkets Thank you for the heads up. I decided to use -git in the end, as that seemed more common (versus -bin) judged by the package counts. What do others think?

physkets commented on 2019-03-13 07:58

I think it is good practice to have a '-bin' suffixing the name, because people will assume that it is being built from source unless mentioned.

Yeah, that makes sense. I know many other packages use a remotely hosted binary, but I feel like many of them are very large programs that would take an impractically long time to compile (Chromium or Firefox, for example). Anyway, if you've thought about it and concluded this is the best way to go then that's cool. That's why I included the "if you agree" part. :)

I tried ffsend-git too but hit a snag, I'll add a comment to that package.

@emlun Thank you!

I interpreted the Wiki as: submitting binaries should be avoided to the AUR git repository (to prevent it from growing too large too fast). Many other AUR packages are using a remotely hosted binary.

I also have ffsend-git available which builds from source. It can be quite flaky though, due to the cargo dependency not really allowing you to set a required version. Therefore I decided to submit a binary package as well, which won't have any build issues.

What do you think?
