For me the build seems to hang after cargo finishes:

   Compiling flare v0.11.1 (/home/marcin/.cache/yay/flare/src/flare-0.11.1)

Installing gnome-keyring solves the issue reported at 2023-08-17, 07:22 UTC. Maybe it needs be added to the depends array?

But it is really inconvenient to have to store secrets in gnome-keyring, if I use other methods :-(.

I have freshly built and installed the package.

When I start flare, a popup windows occurs saying

This package was wrongly marked out-of-date, with a comment about URLs not working. The package is indeed working and is not out-of-date. In future, please create a comment for this kind of concern, rather than making the package out-of-date.

That has been fixed. My apologies for the typo.

The upstream URL seems to have changed. It's not, notice the two ii's in mobileii.

I am not going to rename the binary. The binary is named according to the project itself. If you have an issue with that, I suggest you open an issue there.

You need blueprint-compiler to fix that issue. It's a dep in the latest PKGBUILD. Clone again and try again.
