Because this is official client on download page:

Why is this not using ?

Apologies - just found that port 9418 (git) was being blocked by our firewall.
It works for for me now.

The problem appears to be git:// URLs.

Changing the line:
git clone git:// "${srcdir}/client_theming-${pkgver}/client"
to https:// allows it to proceed, but then it fails when downloading the binary with he same error and I've no idea how to change that to https as it's not part of the PKGBUILD file.

One thing I've noticed is that occasionally it manages to (very slowly) get a little further before timing out, so I'm wondering if there is a problem at this particular git repository. Is this working OK for others?
As i said previously, I haven't seen this issue with other AUR packages.

Yes I agree. We need to get to the bottom of why this is breaking. I'm not much of a programmer but will see what I can do.

This is the error I see:

" ==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
v2.3.2.tar.gz ... Passed

-> Extracting v2.3.2.tar.gz with bsdtar

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

I have same problem on my laptop and desktop, and using a VPN doesn't help. As far as I am aware SSH is not being blocked anywhere.

In order to do something, you need to understand what needs to be done. Do you agree? Now I do not understand what you want of me, so I asked to send a patch if you already have a ready implementation.

I've hit upon this problem too, and I'm not in China. This is the only AUR package that I've had this issue with. Why it does it not follow the usual / standard way which would allow everyone to install?

I live in Russia, there 60 million people use tor / vpn for everyday use. So I think that you can easily avoid your non-government firewall. Instead of trying myself to understand this conversation. Or submit a patch.

Please see this conversation:

Maybe you have to change the GitHub URL from SSH to HTTP.

How I can do it?
Tor or tunnel yourself.
