so you made a puppet account to complain that a package which is up to date is not up to date?

LOL, nope. Not me. I'm maintaining my packages and frankly haven't thought about you for months.

Please stop pinging.

Stop wasting other people's time.

1 : those timestamps are high-tier sus. Day-Week-Month long gaps between most posts, but then several replies with the same opinions within a few hours two times in a row. (<6hr gap) 2 : if the owner of a package is not keeping it maintained, making an alternative package so that users can download a properly maintained package is not wasting anyone's time. Posting and maintaining packages is the entire point of the AUR; saying "if users actually want an up-to-date applications that's their problem" is genuinely just unhinged. If you are not willing to actually maintain the package, do not become the maintainer of the package.

Please refrain to upload the package lbry-app-bin again. you know that package has no reasons to exist anymore, so please don't create it again. The package lbry-app-bin was created multiple times and it was always deleted as it's duplicate of lbry-desktop-bin

Please don't waste other people time, thank you

TomZander, I suggest you to stop creating duplicated packages with other names, again had to fill another deletion request for lbry-app-bin. If people want to update the package they can do that locally, that is not a reason to create duplicated packages and causing trouble to users.

As the owner is repeatedly not updating the package (again a week overdue now), I'd like to suggest people use the actually well updated package by git cloning;

@muflone thanks - my thoughts as well.


Muflone commented on 2022-10-24 20:28 (UTC)

I think everything has gone too far already, please stop here

@skrewball obviously I'm doing this in my free time as well. Just because something is not paid doesn't mean it's not work.

Regarding "forced":

  • I did not force anything, I just made requests to the administrators of the AUR system to have the package renamed.
  • As the requests went through the AUR-system, the package maintainer(s) got an mail as well. There was no response to these mails, neither to me personally nor to the package mailing list until the decision was made, in both cases.
  • To the then followed mails on the mailing list I responded that my intention was, to have the package renamed to be named like the project and the other two packages. I just fixed some packaging issues on the way, while creating the package under the new name. I've also asked if I should disown the package now, so that they could take over again – There was never a response to this.
  • Instead of responding to the question I got insulted via personal mails.
  • Following this I wrote the pinned commend here, and withdrew the offer with it.

I would hardly call this "work", most of us are doing this in our free time.

Also, I watched it happen from the very beginning so your explanation is not needed, and it was definitely forced.

You have a nice day as well :)
