Oops! It turned out that a bug in aurploader (which I was using to uploading the .src.tar.gz) was causing the uploads to, well, not happen. Fixed!

Ok. I've learned about the nature of github get used by many. The other forks I discovered were created to test/build add-ons or fixes so that they can be sent back to the original as a pull request. My bad.

This program hasn't been updated in a bit as why I requested this and is currently broken because of certificate test:

https://github.com/defunkt/gist/issues/98

For now, the only reliable way I've discovered to fix this is to disable the cert test is by disabling it:

sudo sed -i 's/http.ca_file = ca_cert/#http.ca_file = ca_cert/' /usr/bin/gist

Thanks for the patience in understanding.

PKGBUILD still using defunkt's fork.

canton7 commented on 2012-06-18 15:12

Thanks! I've updated the PKGBUILD.

The license wording is identical to the MIT wording, which is why I put it down as the MIT license.

avances123's fork appears to be pretty well maintained, still having trouble SSL with defunkt's fork. PKGBUILD for avances123's:

Version 2.0.2 released. pkgver bumped

Thanks for letting this go daenyth, I'll do my best with it :)

I've updated to quigybo's PKGBUILD, but switched the fork to rduplain's [1], as it contains a patch without which gist refuses to work on my system (issue [2]).

I've asked indirect [3] (who seems to be the most active fork of all the gist forks) to pull from rduplain, and I'll switch this package to his branch when he does, which will give us features such as uploading multiple files.

Let me know if you find any issues!

Woops, I missed that update. Thanks for your interest in it. Orphaned to get it to a good home :)

canton7 commented on 2011-01-26 14:00

I've emailed the maintainer asking him to orphan the package so I can maintain it.
