There you go, it is waiting for you :-). Thanks a lot for your investment!

Sure I could take care of it. Btw, the author officially licensed the project as LGPL the other day.

I currently do not have time to update the package, but I would gladly give you ownership if you feel like it :)? Else, I am afraid I will find time to do it in a few months at earliest...

Hello, I have a few suggestions for this package. Firstly, it would seem appropriate for the package to be renamed following the naming convention of most of the other libfprint drivers on the AUR (libfprint-2-tod-1-tudor-git). Second, the upstream URL ought to be and I've updated the license to unknown since the author hasn't established a clear license (yet). I've also added pkgver() and prepare() functions and made some tweaks to the build.

I've put a full patch below, but renaming the package would require extra intervention from a TU. See also:

It is now :).

could this be updated to support the new relink code? (it's not functional yet, but it will be very soon)
