Unfortunately there is no basic conversion to ocaml 4.06, which has some changes related with return types of certain core functions (mainly now return bytes instead of string), and also it's no easy to move cryptokit 1.7 to ocaml-cryptokit package, because ocaml in arch does not support dynamic linking.

I will update the PKGBUILD to force a lower version of ocaml in dependencies. This will not resolve the problem and sks will still no buildable with current arch packages. I guess that we will need to wait to new sks release.

Any idea to resolve that is welcome of course :) Probably we should mark the package out-of-date anyway...

Package does not build because of invalid GPG signature. The signatured defined in validpgpkeys is not valid for version 1.1.6 [1], instead of that we should use key C90EF1430B3AC0DFD00E6EA541259773973A612A.

Doesn't build. Not only is the upstream link broken and reported here: it also contains linkage errors searching for Berkeley DB 4.6. Use SKS-HG instead found here:

Problem seems to be solved in upstream.

The package is broken for me.

Error: Some fatal warnings were triggered (1 occurrences)
Makefile:386: recipe for target 'mArray.cmx' failed
make: *** [mArray.cmx] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

There is a bug in .service files for systemd. The "Type=fork" line must be "Type=simple" because the process stay in front.
And is a good idea add "TimeoutSec=300" for provide a reasonable time for startup and shutdown... ;)

updated. next I'll provide a systemd service file
