I am orphaning this package as I unfortunately do not have sufficient time to properly take care of it.

@nutz: done!
For a reason, out of date package notifications were disabled so I totally missed it.

@galaux , could you possibly update the AUR, or if you're not maintaining it anymore disown it?

thanks :)

Hi! If you feel there is enough interest for this package, please go ahead. We could then co-maintain it!

Hi, would you mind if I adopted and moved this package to [community], making it an official package?

Don't forget to have a look at [0] for potential breaking changes.

Complete revamp of package.


- "zookeeper" service file is now named "kafka-zookeeper"
- service "kafka-zookeeper" is automatically started by service "kafka"
- package files now live in /usr/share/kafka rather than /opt
- "backup" files declared
- …


- run with some other user than root
- use dependency on package "zookeeper"

Feedback welcome :)
