I'll transfer them to you.

Please DO NOT add me/ users as (co) maintainer without asking.

You can disown the package and invite to become a maintainer, but please do not shift the reponsibility of maintanance to others without their consent.

I have added what I suggested and
now I disown because I do not want to maintain a package which was pushed on me.
Someone else needs to pick up.

Thanks for your enthusiasm. I lost mine somewhere (at least for these packages), so I'll transfer them to you.

I have created the package dummydroid-bin, which is a companion software for raccoon.

So I recommend that you

  • add dummydroid to the optdepends array,
  • add groups=("raccoon").

Can you please

  • add raccoon to the conflicts array,
  • prepend =${pkgver} to the provides entry?

Thanks for maintaining!

Does it really need JDK (java-environment)? Wouldn't JRE (java-runtime) be enough?

It's also a good idea to switch the following things to properly pull the current version:

pkgver to 4.12.0 Source URL to "${pkgver}.jar"

Oh and the hash, of course :)

Yes, it does. Thx again for the package and for the quick fix.

fordprefect commented on 2019-03-07 13:43 (UTC)

@Kr1ss: tried to incorporate all changes except pkgrel bump. could you check if it works for you?

Hi @fordprefect, thx for the package !

It won't work though, b/c the Java executable's path is incorrect. Thus I'd like to suggest a patch for your PKGBUILD :

I've tested this on my end, and it works fine. Cheers !
