  • merge

I could create a new package 'onboard-keyman' and then submit a merge request.

  • license

Thanks for the link about licenses. I can remove the +, although the situation with some licenses is strange.

In the repositories some packages have the -or-later suffix e.g. geonkick, but short identifier is GPL-3.0+ [//never mind], although Arch shortens licenses even more "GPL3", so I thought why not just add +.

  • source code

Thanks, I will change the link.

//Late edit: I might have been wrong about the dependencies.

What do you think about creating a new package onboard-keyman

I agree, but currently don't have time. Do you have sufficient rights to do it?

shouldn't the license be GPL-3.0-or-later?

According to Arch Linux convention it should be "GPL3" (for both GPL3 and GPL3+), otherwise namcap informs the "GPL3+ is not a common license":

namcap ./keyman-onboard-1.4.3-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Files on are recommended by the official developers, so you can use them and check their integrity:

Thank you very much! The links were very useful.

Changelog of my update: arch (launchpad "Builds"), license, depends (iso-codes is required by gtk3, systemd is core, python-dbus renamed to dbus-python), makedepends (git), provides, source to 1.4.3 commit, and pkgdesc which I copied from GitHub, although it's different on launchpad. Edit: corrected commit and added python-lxml depend.

What do you think about creating a new package onboard-keyman for a merge request? Since this is how it's named on both GitHub and launchpad.

I have made you a Co-Maintainer, and I agree with your proposals.

P.S. The most recent version is v1.4.3.

P.P.S. The release code of v.1.4.3 is here or here ("orig.tar.gz" file), so there is no need to rename the package to "-git".

And there are also some other things. I could publish the revised PKGBUILD if the maintainer was interested.

However, I wrote my comment over a month ago and received no response.

This package should be changed to have the -git suffix, merge request to onboard-keyman-git (onboard-keyman, because that's the name of the repository).

It also conflicts with onboard, so provides=('onboard') should be added since it's a drop-in replacement.

Also, shouldn't the license be GPL-3.0-or-later? In the repository, it's written as GPL-3+. However, official packages use the previous variation for such license.

And python-dbus was changed to dbus-python.
