can you include vendor.js that will disable autoupdate ?

@AlexTalker: I’d prefer not to keep 3 versions of the same package in the AUR. aurora can be added to the description of the developer edition if needed, but merging this package in firefox-developer looks like the right thing to do. Maybe you can work with both other maintainers to make firefox-developer great for everyone?

Regarding checksums:

And regarding how to handle things in the PKGBUILD, I recommend looking at this one:

@evotopid GPG is quite good thing, but as u did mention, users need to get a key. I will try this way but a bit later, thank you :)
@Anton.Latukha no problem, this package exists about 3 years in my hands and since I adopted it by other maintainer requiest, I guess my duty is to keep it in a good enough shape to install without get annoyed about update :) Well, I'm not always able to mention problems soon since I often forgot about packages, 'cause I'd put my duty to few scripts which automate it all. As we can see, automation cannot work without errors infinte time :)

@AlexTalker Mozilla FTP now has something better than the old checksum files: GPG signatures of the whole binary, so you can directly add the .tar.bz2.asc file to the sources array and makepkg will validate the source file's integrity with GPG.

This will require users to retrieve the GPG key of Mozilla realease engineering exactly once. For an example you can checkout my package `firefox-developer-de`.

Thank you.

Hi guys, sorry for keeping you late, thought everything is ok.

Seems like mozilla ftp now haven't checksums for latest builds for linux so I patched up my generator to use 'SKIP' for a while.
Seems like ever for latest(not only dated ones) builds of 53 it disappeared, and only for linux. For other platforms & version 52 it's there.

BTW, aurora is historic name and as you can see it's still in URL to files, so I will keep it so while it makes sense to me.

Thanks for notifying me.

There are three Firefox Developer Edition packages now:
* aur/firefox-aurora (52.0a2.20170123004004-1)
* aur/firefox-developer (52.0a2-1)
* aur/firefox-dev (53.0a2_20170205084105-1) which is backend-automatic-updating, guy created that package and server-side script couple of days ago.

On aur/firefox-aurora Firefox Developer Edition keeps spamming me with "Update" windows, so I moving to firefox-dev. I hope guys sort-out responsibilities, which package is going to provide what, and put all that in legitimate description.

Unless I misunderstand, this "aurora"-version is the same as Firefox Developer Edition. Why are there two packages (this and aur:firefox-developer)?

Which day's build did you look at? Today's checksums are right, but at the time of writing I was using the Nov 19th build. I'm not using any custom PKGBUILD, I took it from a fresh clone of the git repo linked above. Steps to reproduce:

git clone
git checkout ff7f628b33632f775c3a2d58626f862c82b3ceb6
cd firefox-aurora
makepkg PKGBUILD

It seems like the Nov 20-22 builds are fine, but you might want to look into why it broke for that day's build.

As always, check sums are right. IDK what is your problem but will appreciate if next time u show me PKGBUILD on which your building goes wrong.
