I noticed it as well when I tried to use it a couple of weeks ago. It's not hard to fix, but the code could do with some love. I started working on a maintained replacement, but didn't get to finish it so far: https://github.com/floriandejonckheere/pacfoster.

Once it's ready, I'll update the upstream on this package, so we can all enjoy cleaning our systems again.

As there is no upstream repo, I'm reporting a bug on this package here. When there is a ~/.pacsave.conf, the program will not start anymore. It will fail with:

$ pacfoster
pikaur
/usr/bin/pacfoster:12:in `<main>': undefined method `lines' for #<File:/home/max/.pacsafe.conf> (NoMethodError)
Did you mean?  lineno

I'm not familar with ruby, but this might be due to a standard library update, I suppose?

I'm not actively using this script, I followed the comment below replacing yaourt with pikaur, because yaourt is obsolete.

I've make pikaur optional, you can override the AUR helper in the script by setting $AURHELPER in your environment.

Why is this now depending on pikaur?

Make the dependency optional please since I don't want two AUR helpers on my system.

yaourt is obviously not around anymore, but the package works like a charm with pikaur!
