Any way to submit changes to the source code? The pacserve-ports script declares with it's shebang that it's POSIX compliant (#!/bin/sh) but it's not, it uses a lot of bashisms.

This is not a problem if you have your /bin/sh linked to bash (by default in Arch Linux), but if you are symlinking sh to dash, the pacserve-ports script will simply not work.

I have fixed it by changing the shebang to /bin/bash on my own computer and I would like to contribute this change.

No, users are expected to rebuild 3.9 AUR packages manually. Some AUR maintainers do bump pkgrel, but it is not required of them.

Hello. shouldn't the pkgrel be bumped now that python 3.10 is out ?

@Speranskiy The site should be back up soon under a different domain. The pkgbuild will be updated as soon as it is.

Upstream URL is not resolving.

The work around for the issue where pacserve is failing out with The requested URL returned error: 400 is to ensure that all packages that are being requested have the associated .sig files in the package cache. How to do this, I don't know, does anyone know the command to do this?

Edit Update: Xyne found the issue and has fixed it[1]. I have not confirmed this yet, but will be testing here in a few days when I do a fresh installation of arch to a new machine.

Seems that after pacman 6.0 update, things are a bit wonky, I am repeatedly getting one package downloaded on a -Syu, then the next one failing with 400
