@yochananmarqos Until a couple of years ago I used to prefer using git tags rather than source tarballs in all my packages, until some user(s) complained about the extra storage space and bandwidth required when using tags, so I switched over to tarballs.

I too would like to utilize that extra robustness of PGP keys, and this is in my opinion a good counterargument to said user(s) (because security >>> a few kB or mB of temp storage), so I'll see to it in the near(-ish) future that I switch back to tags again and add PGP verification in the process. Thanks for the suggestion.

@Nocifer: By adding developer PGP keys, it increases the security and validity of the package. I do that in my AUR packages whether it's a signed commit, tag or tarball. It's up to you if you want to make the change, of course.

In this case, the tarball does not have a matching signature file; i.e, .tar.gz.asc.

Hey @yochananmarqos, I'd be happy to do that if there is a good reason for it, otherwise for the time being I'd prefer if I avoided switching to a git-based process. AFAIK Github's source archives are generated on the fly from the actual source code, so there's no chance of any xz-like shenanigans in our case. Is there a way to use Github's GPG verification with source archives of commits instead of the commits themselves?

@Nocifer: Please use the signed git tag as the source:

validpgpkeys=('D5D568B2D34AB32A337944D22EC3F60DE71C0B9D') # James Lu <>

@jdigi78 Done, and thanks for reporting it!

If the thumbnailer appears to not be working, try icoextract-git. It's been updated with the missing MIME type. @Nocifer I'd recommend patching this pkgbuild with that change as well.

@dr460nf1r3 Yeah, that was a mistake; I accidentally pasted 'provides' over 'conflicts' instead of above it and then pushed the update without noticing because I was in haste to finish editing my PKGBUILDS in time to leave and go catch my vacation flight :P

Why exactly did you remove the conflicts array? It is needed to properly handle the removal of exe-thumbnailer.
