@Alad: done, sorry I didn't see that option. I'm thinking that this package should turn into ghost-legacy, and that someone should package ghost-cli. Either way, I'm not someone who does development in nodejs so I get frustrated easily with the ecosystem, I hope someone else with more experience picks this up.

@storrgie: you don't need to file a request to orphan a package you maintain. Just click "Disown Package" in the Package Actions box.

I"m sorry, but I am afraid, I'll have to disown this package. With 1.0 the packaging will have to be completely overhauled, and as I am rathjer inexperienced with NodeJS, I dont"t think I will be able to do that dequately. Please feel free to go on. :)

any news?

Just tried to make my own .pkg with `debtap`, but it fails to start. I am totally inexperienced with packaging, so maybe someone else may succeed. The package is built rather successfully, only with some minor warning, but the app doesn't start at all. There seem to be problems with main object init, as far as I can say (tested ghost-desktop-1.3.0-debian.deb as source).

I want 1.0 so bad

My 2 cents, I tried ghost-cli is making things really easy for general use, too bad they focused only on ubuntu, we might want to contribute to ghost-cli to work with arch, instead of having to change everything in here to make it work.

I think for this package there are 2 options:
1. Use ghost-cli local over the /usr/share/weabapps/ghost directory (and maybe 1 more pkg for ghost-cli that should be included here as dependency)
2. Just get the latest src to build ghost

I'm still unsure how how we should package this. They've released 1.0 now and there is a _very strong_ indication that their golden path for install requires ghost-cli (which should be a separate package).

I'm hesitant to change anything about this because right now it still installs a version of ghost legacy that actually works.

I'd really like some assistance from others, I'm not a node person. I feel entirely confused by all of the "assistance" that ghost-cli is trying to help out with. I would much prefer we package/install/run ghost 1.0 the same way as we're doing here.

"please stop demanding that changes be made immediately."
Wtf? My ghost installation works fine, I don't demand that changes be made immediately. BTW, if you need my help, ask me.
