License is also GPL2 not, GPL.

flacks commented on 2020-09-26 13:20

openssl is also not needed as a depends, as per namcap.

flacks commented on 2020-09-26 13:20

-D man=true as a meson parameter and docbook2x as a makedepends are both missing to generate documentation as well.

Version 1.11.0.git.20200404 either never existed, or was removed on purpose. Latest version for today is 1.11.0-git-20200830.

I get a 404 when attempting to install:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

This fixed it for me:

Can't use it since my account was created after 11/6/2018

Here is the disclaimer from megatools website:

Read this issue if you've registered an account via web client since 11/6/2018. You'll not be able to use your account with megatools. You can still use megatools to download publicly exported files for free, or use accounts created before 11/6/2018. You may also be able to register accounts with megatools, and those will work with megatools. You just can't use the new style accounts that mega's website creates now.
