The repo has moved to (from hut/ranger). PKGBUILD still works though.

@ansatz It's been fixed upstream.

I get the following error when running makepkg:
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Using "", fixes this.

What metadata is bad? The version number?

bchretien commented on 2014-08-16 14:09

This could simply be reuploaded with the appropriate metadata (e.g. use mkaurball from pkgbuild-introspection).

markfoxwell commented on 2014-04-21 20:09

Is there any reason this is still flagged as out-of-date?

hut commented on 2013-04-08 20:59

Good, since pacman 4.1 is in core, I'm gonna update the pkgbuild. Thank you for doing the conversion! ^_^

Well, as far as I know Arch users should always be up to date and since pacman 4.1 is in [core], we don't need to take care of pacman 4.0.3 anymore. But of course you can wait with the update, since the old build still works (but the pkgver won't be updated then).
