Just change 3.3.7 for 3.3.9

I actually subscribed just to see if the vendor ever got their head out of their tail - made changes and got odrive-bin working 'okay' myself.

If you orphan it can't anyone just grab it and maintain it?

Kudos to you for working through this and owning it so long, regardless <3

Well, this project is just not worth for me anymore, I stopped using overgrive long ago due to several issues. Still, it would be nice if somebody else could maintain the package. I only did not leave this project orphan because of previous issues with the overgrive team, but if somebody wants the ownership, leave a message.

So have we just given up on this whole thing? I see @thefanclub has actual install files on their website now which pull all the dependencies it needs. That's all fine and good, but having that all linked up to the AUR would make it a mindless task for Arch and Manjaro users. It seems as though these people really really just want you to go to their website. It's strange thinking.

I was also going to use overgrive, but backed off due to the rather weird attitude by the the devs. It seems they have issues in general. If you go to the comment section of the article by 'it's foss', people are talking about getting emails with f-words from the overgrive tech support. I'm not trusting my data with software made by such people, I'll try to use rclone or something.

I was going to use overgrive over insync, but after reading THIS message from @thefanclub. I dont want to support devs with this attitude! Going to pay for insync.

However this package installed like a charm. Thanks for the work @pedro00dk!

Was using odrive-bin but has a few things that bother me. Had heard/read good things and don't have an issue with a one-time license (though subscription models I tend to avoid like InSync) in some cases.

Response from @thefanclub is horrifying/stupifying - @dlezo nailed it.

Thanks for the work here, @pedro00dk, here's the dev pulls their head out of their posterior at some point :)

Back to looking for a good alternative that'll not have this problem in AUR or community - subscribed in case things twist upstream.

I created a pull request for you to update this package to v3.3.7-0.

The download link to v3.3.5 doesn't exist anymore.

thanks.

Thanks guys for the support.

I can't believe what I'm reading. The developer (@thefanclub) is threating @pedro00dk for creating a build file and so helping everyone to use this software.

@thefanclub, you are doing it wrong. It's fine if you don't want to work your own build file for Arch Linux distributions. It's also fine if you don't want to help to those that are doing this selflessly job. But asking to remove a build file... and presenting legal reasons... come on... this is totally absurd and destructive, even for yourself.

Manjaro is actually the second most used Linux distribution (and it is an Arch Linux based distro). With this kind of demands like requiring to delete a build file you are loosing users. And most important: you are sending a very negative message and people like me will avoid your company when there are alternatives (and for your software, there are).

I hope @thefanclub finds the time to think about this again. But if your company was mine sure I won't be biting the hand that feeds me. I already bought an Insync license and not chosing overGrive among other things was because Insync has a nice AUR build file that I can use with Manjaro and Arch Linux.

@thefanclub: You have zero packages published right now. Publish a new package for your software, contribute fixing the problems of stop threating us. As I see it these are your 3 best options.

@pedro00dk: Thank you for your effort, your support when bugs appear and for your many quick messages. Me, as a user, really appreciate your work.
