Once debranding is fully finished and pushed to a release, this will no longer build as MultiMC, it will instead build as DevLauncher. Package name should probably change to reflect this. see:

They added a file to put the secret in, along with a description and link to register for one, if you'd like to register and put one in (or read a config file/env for users to provide their own)

Welp someone will have to adopt this, My sister and I switched from this to the multimc-bin well before this went down because of a issue we had with the bin version but that got fixed some time ago.

There is no infringement here - This is not distributing MultiMC, this is distributing a build script for users on their machines. The developer is blowing a bunch of hot air. Since users find value with this package, I'm denying the deletion request.

Those that care about this package, consider piping up to the developer and letting them know that they are mistaken. Also maybe kindly remind them that they're being a jerk. :)

Interesting that NixOS is able to distribute a similar build script

Whats hostile about it exactly? it's it really annoying to maintain or something?

xiretza commented on 2021-09-26 15:03

Eh, screw it, I filed a deletion request. I have no interest in using or maintaing software with such a hostile upstream.

@xiretza: I can only link to this comment by the upstream maintainer:

I am not an expert on international trademark laws/regulations.

@jotoho: as far as I can tell, "MultiMC" is not a registered trademark anywhere, so there's nothing to infringe upon.

Users of this package might want to read this thread on the multimc issue tracker to learn of the state and trajectory of the project, how packages like this one are technically trademark infringements and why the use of any builds other than those from is unsupported and discouraged:

Packages that download the official binary build from and install that without modifications like multimc-bin are fine and should work.
