Description: particle-cli <= 1.38.0-1 includes the udev-rule "50-particle.rules" in directory "/etc/udev/rules.d", which relies on the group "plugdev". This group doesn't exist by default and is not referred in our wiki. The "plugdev" group seems to be a special group from Ubuntu and is not generally used on GNU/Linux.

The developers of systemd doesn't like this:

I want judge this. But we are relying on systemd. So it seems sane, to follow their policy.

When installing the latest version of this package, I lot of warnings from pacman:

warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/lib/node_modules/particle-cli/ filesystem: 755 package: 777

It doesn't seem to have changed permissions on already existing directories, but ones that it created seem to have global read/write permissions on the directories (but not their contents).

makepkg 5.0.2 npm 5.8.0

I fixed it for my installation by running find /usr/lib/node_modules/particle-cli/ -type d -exec sudo chmod 755 {} \;, but this should probably be fixed in the package.

Maybe add dfu-util and openssl as opt dependencies? They're needed for local flashing.
