This project is now unmaintained. Users are encouraged to move to another solution (see wiki for alternatives).

The change will be done on the next 4.8 version, which isn't going to be released before a few weeks/months anyway.

What about allowing a co-maintainer do the change?

Can you please read my comment below?

Can you please do what MarcinWieczorek and Alad suggested?

kyak, there's nothing pacaur (or any aur helper) can do about packages that are purely virtual.

Before bringing it to bugtracker, i wanted to quickly check if this is even relevant to pacaur.

When trying to install gplaycli package, I get this error:

:: no results found for python-pyaxmlparser (dependency tree: gplaycli python-pyaxmlparser)

There is python-pyaxmlparser-git package, which provides python-pyaxmlparser. Should it be caught by pacaur, or is this expected behaviour?

Alad> I see, this indeed makes sense. I am however not able to make this change for quite a few weeks, I'll do once I get access to a unix machine again.

Works fine here. Without further detail, we can assume it's something on your end...

Spyhawk, makepkg -s -i simple doesn't work because of malformed PKGBUILD.

Alad commented on 2017-09-28 20:30

What he means is that right now, the pacaur archive is downloaded as 4.7.10.tar.gz. It's quite possible that a different project has the same pkgver and that the corresponding PKGBUILD also downloads it as 4.7.10.tar.gz.

So, if you have SRCDEST set to some common directory a conflict occurs and things will break. A simple fix is to use:
