I did not request to adopt the package. I was sending a message saying that it is not maintained. But anyways, I will try to do an update to the PKGBUILD shortterm. I need to read a few instructions upfront.

It means we can both update the PKGBUILD, since you requested to adopt the package. I’m too busy for the next couple weeks.

ok. But what does that mean?

ido commented on 2024-07-11 00:19 (UTC)

Added you as a maintainer @mabod

For now, you can use this modified PKGBUILD for 6.18.12



pkgdesc='POP3 mail retriever with reliable Maildir and command delivery; Python 3 port'


makedepends=('git' 'python-setuptools')
optdepends=('python-keyring: secure password store'
          'python-keyrings-alt: alternative backends')


build() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
  python build

package() {
  cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
  PYTHONHASHSEED=0 python install --skip-build --optimize=1 --root="$pkgdir"

Is this package still maintained? Latest release on github is 6.18.12. And even the previous version 6.18.11 is a month old.

Thx for the notice @Roland, I also pushed a new package, according to the current upstream name. I'm going to submit a request to merge this package into the new one; mailwizard{,-git} now depend on getmail6.

Cheers !

I made the getmail6 github organization and transferred getmail to it as getmail6. git+ is the new address for the git repo. Please update, Kr1ss.
