Apply this patch: "" or one like it or I will submit a request for this package to become a orphan.

I noticed the other day that calls a JavaScript module named "stockfish" when analyzing games.

Stockfish 8 is out. I have just downloaded and compiled it, builds fine.

Hi, so why Stockfish is not yet in community ? The strongest open source chess engine...

upstream has dropped opening book support. opening should be handled by the gui now.

Auguste commented on 2013-11-27 06:20

of course i have no objection.

i secretly hope all aur packages i use can be moved to community someday. ;-)

Ok, thanks. I opened an issue here:

Would you mind if I moved this package to [community], btw?

Auguste commented on 2013-11-26 09:40

sorry, i don't know. it's on their website. and i assumed they have the same license.

Hi. I'm considering making stockfish an official Arch Linux package, but I can not see which license the file is under. Is it freely available?
