I have been gradually working on a new backend for a while. It is available for testing here[1]. It is not entirely backwards-compatible so please give it a try now and get ready to migrate your configuration files and scripts. Extension developers are most welcome :D.

Please keep related discussion in the forum thread.

Is it updated in your binary repo? Version I have is 2013.12-1 from there which breaks since 'python3' is now just 'python' .... Thanks for all your fantastic tools and the binary repo too.

A quick search for "aur xyne gpg key" returns multiple hits with the solution (e.g.

Short answer: you need to import the keys that you wish to verify.

Doesn't work - fails on GPG key verification.

For what? The dependency?

I mean python3:

$ pacman -Si python
Repository : extra
Name : python
Version : 3.3.0-1
Provides : python3

I consider different major versions of Python to be different languages as they are incompatible. Changing the names of packages, deps, projects, etc. whenever a new version of Python is released is not something that I want to do. Explicit versioning should be future-proof.

Do you mean python2 or simply python (which is version 3)?

The .sig file isn't available at that URL. It doesn't seem to be used though; removing it from the PKGBUILD leaves the package buildable again.

Nvm that last bit. I've updated pbget to retrieve PKGBUILDs from the new web interface.

Yeah, it's a bug. Nice catch too... it's been there for ages and I've never noticed it.

Btw, the SVN interface on has changed recently and I don't know what they're doing with it yet, so you'll need to install rsync use the "--abs" option to get PKGBUILDs for the official repos, at least for now.

I got this message when I makepkg. Is it a bug?
