Fair enough, that makes sense. It just showed up as an issue for me today when updating. To be honest I don't even know why I have it installed :D Just assumed it was a dependency for another package. Doesn't seem so though so I'll probably remove it from my system. Thanks for the fast response.

I orphaned the package last week, as I no longer use it myself. (Reason: the results of using it were disappointing, and I found out I was using a different "subsync" than the one I heard good things about. Turns out there are two projects using that name, and the other one works much better. I intended to maybe change this package into the other project, but found that one was even more impossible to properly package. It is only officially distributed as a snap...)

Feel free to adopt it if interested. The breakage whenever master changes was intentional, to alert the builder of it being out of date. With no official releases and unclear versioning, that seemed like the most sensible thing to do. There are also a ton of extra runtime requirements (several not available in AUR or official repos to begin with) that make this package almost impossible to support properly. Honestly, I think the best course of action for this package would be to drop it from the AUR entirely. However, it doesn't technically fall under any of the reasons for deletion (perhaps "irreparably broken", but that is a bit of a stretch), so I orphaned it instead.

The package is currently failing to build due to a mismatch md5sum as the github repository has been updated. Instead of setting the download to point at master which will change at any moment the subsync devs make their changes, point to a specific commit to prevent this package breaking at random times. E.g: https://github.com/smacke/subsync/archive/[commit-sha].zip

From here: https://github.com/smacke/subsync/blob/master/subsync/version.py Took me a while to find it, too. Especially since there seem to be no official releases. The version number just changes sometimes.

Where does the version 0.2.4 come from? It doesn't say the version number anywhere.
