@Spyhawk just found out that your project is unmaintained, and a probability of 'likely' working beyond 5.1 is still better than not working.

Regardless, thank you for creating such an excellent tool for the community, and good luck! I'll surely keep an eye open for any future projects you embark upon.

Most of the required compatibility work seems to have already be done in the master branch. As such, the project will 'likely' work correctly beyond pacman 5.1 release.

What about of deliver the maintenance to anyone else? Is it so difficult to continue being maintained? Will Pacman 5.1 have a lot of changes to discourage this excellent tool?

Thanks for great tool, @Spyhawk! Completely agree with @smls precise comment about workflow.

@Spyhawk Thanks for having maintained this for all this time, truly an amazing tool. Having used Yaourt and Aura before it I'm a bit sad letting go of pacaur, the only sane project of the bunch. Once again, thank you!

Thanks for all the work you put into this over the years, @Spyhawk. It's been a very helpful tool.

When I started using it, it was the only AUR helper that made a serious effort to live up to a "fast/streamlined workflow" design principle.

I still remember the dark ages of Yaourt & friends, which blocked between every package they installed or updated to make me run a gauntlet of questions (with some requiring "Yes" to continue, and some "No"... shudder).

I haven't looked at the state of other AUR helpers in a long time now, though. Hopefully, pacaur has rubbed off on them a bit in the meantime.

And as you say, there's no rush to switch immediately...

Dang it, such a nice tool, so sad about it hitting EOL @Spyhawk i guess your motives are rock solid for letting go of this project thank you for such a nice tool and all the work going into it, take care.

@kyak> I haven't made a decision yet. Pacaur will still work as it does currently at least until pacman 5.1 is released, so there is no urgency in switching right now. I'll keep observing what happens in the next few months.

Also, a personal thank you for your work on the Russian translation the past few years.

@Spyhawk, thanks for the great job!

Which AUR helper will you be using yourself from now on? I'm a bit frustrated by the number of AUR helpers and their current state :(
