✔ NOTE: If the md5sums don't match, don't post the makepkg output. Simply flag the package.

You can check for new Linux releases in:, or use:
$ curl -s | gzip -df | awk -F\" '/pkgid/{ sub(".*-","",$4); print $4": "$10 }'

Matches just fine for me.

google-chrome-unstable_63.0.3236.7_amd64.deb seems to ship the man page as a .gz, causing the PKGBUILD to fail when trying to gzip a no longer present uncompressed man page:

gzip: ...../pkg/google-chrome-dev/usr/share/man/man1/google-chrome-unstable.1: No such file or directory

$ ls pkg/google-chrome-dev/usr/share/man/man1/

Commenting out the gzip command in the PKGBUILD allows it to build.

It's often good idea to try pure makepkg first. This one's a Pacaur bug:

Workaround: $ rm ~/.cache/pacaur/google-chrome-dev/eula_text.html

Getting the following error when trying to update:

:: Installing google-chrome-dev package(s)...
:: google-chrome-dev package(s) failed to install.
:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD
:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

No, I think that's only if you run GNOME. I didn't need it, and it's already an optional dependency.

gnome-keyring is probably a new dependency, before installing it chrome would crash with 'Gkr-Message: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files'

Mmmm. No it isn't.

Oy vey. Seems like they stock the older versions now directly in

It's very clearly explained there the commented bit, although it seems they also 404 now.
