unfortunately the link doesn't seem stable at all

please don't host binary data in the AUR

you could use the local://rootactions_servicemenu_${pkgver}.tar.gz source to let the user the need to download the file and place it in the AUR repository directory

muflone: Just try to download at the upstream URL, ideally with the browser network monitor enabled. I cannot see any stable download link there. But then, it looks unmaintained upstream – last release more than five years ago.

I just wanted to help by mirroring on my little server, but if that's not okay, what else could be done? Host the 55 kB tar ball here in this git repo? That would be easy, but I'm not sure if that would be okay.

@buzo there's nothing to relax about.

I'm glad you removed your joke on your website because maintainers have responsibility on giving trust to their package users.

A source copied from the original author website to another website, plus appearing as seized, is not the correct way to communicate your users you can be trusted.

Stated the software seems not developed anymore, is the source URL still changing? Could you please revert the source URL to point to the upstream author source as I asked you before?

You should all relax a bit. This “domain seizure warning” was just a joke, see here on GitHub. I have removed it to avoid further confusion.

I started to mirror the source tar ball four years ago only because the source URL at used to change very frequently. I didn't change anything, as you can verify by comparing the files or SHA-256 hashes.

To be fair, the mirrored file is still there despite the seizure warning(*) and the sha256sums is the same as reported by "arojas" (dev) back in 2018 (see git blame). I compared the contents of the mirrored file and the source in; they're the same.

That said, probably using local:// protocol and let the user download the file manually will be better, just my two cents...

(*) Are we sure this is legit and not a joke?

the maintainer @buzo some time ago has changed the source URL to his private domain which results to be seized from public authorities

Apart not being working actually as the source URL is broken, this seems suspicious.

Buzo, please restore the original upstream source or leave the package maintainership to someone else

@Zedgamer9128 you are right, my mistake! kde-cli-tools is needed here in depends, because the dolphin package only has it in optdepends.

Zedgamer9128 commented on 2022-06-29 07:31 (UTC)

@MarsSeed kde-cli-tools is optional dependency not mandatory.

MarsSeed commented on 2022-06-21 12:48 (UTC)

@Zedgamer9128 good observation. Though it is not essentially required here to declare kde-cli-tools as a dependency, since that is already a mandatory dependency of the Dolphin file manager.
