I have requested upstream to include license file with each release archive. Will remove the gitlab url with next release.

Thanks, it looks much better now. Good find on upstream versioned sources. The last thing I see is that the license file shouldn't be fetched from master, that should be pulled from the version tag as well. It's unlikely that the license will change frequently and you might get away with this for some releases, but eventually somebody is going to bump the copyright date or add the contributor list and the package will break because the checksum changes.

Thanks @caleb, package is now updated with all the suggestions you made and it now follows arch guidelines.

A few things to fix on this packaging:

  • The source downloads need to be versioned, otherwise people can't build updates. The source zip can be downloaded with a prefix like this:


  • The license should be listed as license=('OFL'), no version.

  • Drop the install file and matching line completely, that stuff is obsolete, see the Wiki for font packaging guidelines.

  • Remove the || return 1 nonsense from all lines in the package() function.

  • Remove the conflicts with the TTF package, OTF and TTF fonts can co-exist. Also the package referenced doesn't even exist.
