Please do, and have them contact me if they need any sort of confirmation.

Thanks in advance,

As @karol_007 says, has moved to git lately. I migrated the repo, but forgot to update the PKGBUILD. The package is better named sandy-git anyways (since it fetches from the git repo now :).

I'm rather busy atm, so it'd be great if @StefanHusmann could take the AUR maintenance over. Sadly, sandy does not update that often either for the same reason.

Thanks folks! Let me know how I can help with the merge. What's the procedure here?

I think all suckless stuff has moved to git:
We are glad to announce the switch to git from mercurial in all of our repositories. You can find them at Many thanks to 20h for his contribution! says it's git too.

I think the -hg package should be merged into the -git one, you just need to figure out who will maintain it - you or rafunchi.

Hello, is sandy developed in a hg repo or in a git repo? I ask because there is also a sandy-git package in AUR (I just adopted).

I've updated the tip a bit more: I added a couple of keybindings to the default config and polished the manpage a little.

Wow, that's one fast response :-)

I was a bit baffled by 'any' -> 'i686' transition as it may lead to problems but everything is fine now.
I've learned about sandy just 2 hrs ago so I haven't used it much yet, but I'll try to find some time in the weekend.

70 is the last hg revision I commited today, whereas 6 was probably the one when I last updated the PKGBUILD. The installation method has not changed (and is not likely to change soon!), so the PKGBUILD is still valid. I will nevertheless update it.

The arch is alright: you probably compiled sandy in a i686 host. Valid architectures are i686 and x86_64 (though there was a stupid bug when inpuing multibyte UTF-8 chars in x86_64 until earlier today, bummer), but the binary is different for each, so the package is not "any", but rather "i686" or "x86_64" depending on where you compile it.

By the way, I'm testing a new way of entering and selecting text and things are not really consistent now (nor is the man page properly updated). Sorry for that, will get it fixed soon, please provide feedback.

Finally, I don't quite get as much time to work in sandy as I'd like, but today has been one of those days.

Best regards,

I've got a little problem: the resulting package is named sandy-hg-70-1-i686 and not sandy-hg-6-1-any.
What went wrong?
