hobbypunk flagged rvm out-of-date on 2019-05-08 for the following reason:

don't use it. rbenv!

Does this mean that the current maintainer (hobbypunk) has abandoned this package? In that case, can that be flagged more clearly so someone else can take over?

1.29.7 is available by now, any chance of an update?

Could you use install -Dm755 -t "$DESTETC/profile.d/" instead of the cp "$DESTETC/profile.d/" to explicitly define permissions (755 in this case)? I noticed that is not executable. Same for other places where you do cp.

Ah, I see- thanks! To be honest, I haven't experienced any issue with PGP keys even before the update, because I always add keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve to my ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf and then it fetches all missing keys for me automatically.

first, thanks @all ;) :D

@maximbaz, if i want to use validpgpkeys i have to remove the rvm-installer and do this by hand ;) i'll test this way, if i have a little more time, sorry for now

maximbaz commented on 2018-01-04 13:00

I might be wrong, but I think the proper way to handle PGP keys is not hardcoding gpg --import in PKGBUILD, but putting valigpgpkeys entry - see here.

Could you please remove cp "$DESTETC/profile.d/" from PKGBUILD? I think there is a general tendency for people to source it manually. But also, RVM is loading very slow, and there are ways to load it on demand (when it is first being used), so the terminal starts faster.

In addition, this line is also partially responsible for zsh crashing, because rvm is always being sourced, so people cannot simply comment out sourcing in their dotfiles.

+1.. cannot install the package without fetching the public key first

please remove >/dev/null 2>/dev/null at the end of the line 24 otherwise we don't see what does the the script does ! This is very useful when the build failed !

Thx in advance :)
