Hey @Spixmaster,

this release isn't showing up for me, just the tag is. I made a request for more information as this release has been pushed some days ago and modified twice, but were always removed again. 🤷‍♂️

Request for information about the release's status:

I'll push the update (which is already finished) as soon as this gets resolved.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

ok, thank you for commenting on this and I fully understand you want to compile stuff yourself.

You seem to have missed that upstream does not name its git repo the same as its releases. And instead of using the source tarball as an input, you use a git repo which I guess lead to the incorrect conclusion on naming.

Upstream uses the 'lbry' name for its releases, for its executable, your sources list lbry.desktop which has as 'name' field LBRY, and even the first words in the "" are "LBRY App".

I would like to suggest that you follow upstream in their naming.

@TomZander: As wrote in the mail thread, I have no intention to maintain the -bin package (if there's another maintainer available – so I will disown if you like to take over the maintenance again). My issue with lbry-app-bin is just with possible confusion by the wrong naming – I mean there's no benefit doing this, and it will confuse people just beeing something "different" than lbry-desktop.

The reason I created this for of the lbry-desktop-git is: I don't like to install binary blobs, if there's a way to fetch and build it from the source.

Also a "deletion" doesn't mean the data or your contributions are gone. It's just hidden from the website, but still available in the git repositories.

If your intention is for AUR to have both a source and a bin package, that sounds good to me. Absolutely, maintain the source version!

You confused us all with your deletion request.
