I made a new package under the hyphenated name, and put in a merge request. Once we're migrated over, you can feel free to take the libseekthermal-git name :)

No worries. The way you explained your concerns just confused me is all.

@alexandria: Yeah of course, I never tried to offend you personally. A orphan request isn't something bad or however you see it. It won't get trough when you're still active. Thx, we then finally don't have to install from source again.

OH! You're talking about the package URL metadata. Fair enough.

I'll change the package name to libseek-thermal, and you in return will leave me alone. Deal? :P

@alexandria: The original libseekthermal author never did this, the author libseek-thermal did this. These are two diffrent project, and as you can see in the git log of this project, this repo was for libseekthermal. This is even gets underlinded by the fact that your upstream repo link is broken. If you want maintain libseek-thermal create a new package and handle this one over to me, but that's the wrong name.

The original developer of libseekthermal passed the torch to the OpenThermal team, for maintaining and advancing libseekthermal. I understand that there have been -ahem- some people complaining that we are not using their preferred fork, but they are totally free to make their own AUR package pulling from their preferred repo.

@bionade24 This package is currently functioning fine, as far as I'm aware. I feel like you might be having trouble reading the git log correctly -- have you downloaded and tested the latest commit?

I intend to keep this repo as managed, under the OpenThermal team. If you want, you could ask the team to merge your changes into the upstream repo.

Hi, a reminder: most people would fix their packages immedeately after getting an orphan request. You still haven't, which annoys when someone tries to install it.

I even offered you to make it for you if you add me as co-maintainer. If you ignore this, I'll do another orphan request because you don't care about your package being up to date.

@hz0885: @alexanderia: OpenTermal/libseek-thermal is the wrong software. If you look in the git log of this AUR package, you'll see that it was depending on ethz-asl/libseekthermal earlier, which is a diffrent software. We already fixed this repo long ago, you can find it here.

@alexandria: This wasn't ment offending in any way. When you go on my profile, you'll see that I maintain lots of packages. It's just normal that you give packages you don't care about anymore away. If you could add me as co-maintainer, I'll fix this package, I already fixed the depedendent software upstream long ago.
