This is the new fork of https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rssowl/, which is a completely different development project, therefore the new name.

BEFORE YOU ASK/COMPLAIN: this package builds from Java source via Maven, because that's what upstream provides. This means that running makepkg will bring in all the Maven deps. To avoid cluttering your $home and leaving behind build artifacts in a $home/.m2 folder, the build creates an empty Maven repo subfolder inside the src/ folder. You'll notice a lot of deps being downloaded during makepkg. But at least this way your $home stays clean.

Also: makepkg will warn that "Package contains reference to $srcdir". There is one file (org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.prefs) that will get created during the build process that contains a reference to your original src folder. I hate this, but I couldn't find an easy way to patch that. You could try just removing that file after the install and see if it breaks.
