Ugh, github archives...

md5 should be bdcdf8c916bab325c5794606962ddcbd now.

Someone keeps moving the goalposts.

odd, i did check the package build when i updated the version - i've now fixed the md5sum, though

OK, after some investigation:

perl-json-pp and perl-libwww are core requirements, used for fetching programmes from the BBC servers, so can't be optional. The same goes for perl-lwp-protocol-https and perl-json-pp (although perl-json-pp is part of perl itself these days anyway).

perl-mojolicious is used to speed up indexing. I can make it optdepends, but you almost certainly want it.

alexmerry commented on 2020-05-24 11:55 (UTC)

My understanding was that perl-mojolicious was used for the indexing, and perl-json-pp is built in to Perl these days, but I'll revisit the requirements and see.

Maybe perl-json-pp, perl-libwww and perl-mojolicious should be optional dependencies, as these are only used for the cgi? Particularly as mojolicious is only available in AUR.

The FTP (and the rest of appears to be down again. Is there a particular reason we can't use the archive stored on Github for this package?
