  1. Compliance with AUR submission guideline, which say not to use replaces.
  2. The rename was 8 years ago. It's no longer needed.
  3. replaces has caused problems in some use-case scenarios. Should be removed when no longer needed.

Sorry, could you please elaborate a little on why it should be removed?

Please remove replaces directive. Thank you.

Oops, indeed, thanks.

I have added x86_64 for now, would you happen to have reports of it working on aarch64 as well?

This package has platform-specific binaries (e.g. nqp-m) so will need the arch array updating, e.g.:

Thank you spider-mario for fixing it so quickly, and sorry for the late reply. I didn't notice I had a notification here. It installs from AUR without problems now!

Though I think the earlier problem should be fixed, as the previous url loads a gzip file for me.

spider-mario commented on 2019-08-12 19:07 (UTC)

With git sources, git itself handles that. makepkg -g won’t output a checksum for them.

respiranto commented on 2019-08-10 17:47 (UTC)

Is there a reason for not specifying a checksum?

spider-mario commented on 2019-04-30 20:19 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me. It should be fixed now. Does it work?

Currently the install fails with E404;
if you're downloading this only as a rakudo dependency, you can install rakudo from, following the instructions here:
