The handling of GPG signatures is not specific to this package. It is already covered in the AUR documentation:

Update: fixed by dropping the --keyserver parameter.

strajder commented on 2022-04-25 10:53 (UTC)

Currently, I'm getting

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-key 3EF90523B304AF08
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No keyserver available

I didn't have to import the PGP key using pikaur so far, so I don't know if that perhaps changed. Can this command be at least added as a comment to PKGBUILD?

@strajder: To verify the signature you have to first import the corresponding public key with gpg --keyserver --recv-key 3EF90523B304AF08. It works the same as for any other AUR package. As I do not use any AUR helper like pikaur, I do not know if this step is usually automated by those tools.

I'm getting the following output from pikaur:

@fgrsnau: your proposed workaround works in my case (good enogh), thank you, will go with that until another update to 1.9(?).

@fgrsnau: How about 1.8.90 alpha meanwhile? It includes the fix according to a report on the ML (that I can't find right now)

Hi exclumine and OJFord!

I did have a look and it seems that incorporating the changes is currently not easily done (other opinions welcome though!)

The python subdirectory is missing from the upstream source tarball (at least for the latest stable release). While we could fetch these files or include them I think it makes more sense to wait for them to appear in an official release, because this is not a *-git package.

Regarding the renaming/tmpfs issuse: The patch unfortunately does not apply nicely. If you look at the patch it is also modifying bootstrap.conf which is (i) not part of the source distribution, (ii) used by gnulib to copy a "source code library" into the source distribution and doing proper modifications of the whole build system (namely lib/ which is then mangled by automake). I currently hesitate to patch these automatically generated autotools/automake things.

Depending on the release date of 1.9 it should be easier to wait for the change to appear there. (A workaround right now is to set the TMPDIR environment variable to a directory on the same filesystem.)

As a side note: The fix seems to unconditional introduce a copy+unlink step which is not an atomic operation. If a problem occurs during the copy (overwrite) the database will probably become corrupted.

I'm not sure what's most appropriate here, but could you include the python lib? There is no separate python-rec currently, and since it's in the same repo maybe it makes sense to provide in this package too? (That is what packages such as git do with their 'contrib' dirs, for example.)

Hi fgrsnau, Could you include the upstream commits which fix a /tmp/rec* renaming error? Currently selected utils fail as they cannot handle files in other filesystems well. It seems that jemarch fixed that in Thx and best exlumine
