Sorry, for some reason I didn't realized I had a request. I have just added unzip as makedep.

Bump to comment below, unzip is not part of base-devel but required to build this package

Would it be possible to list "unzip" as a dependency when trying to compile? I typically do not have the "unzip" package installed when I set up my Arch Linux environment and I had to install it in order to get it to build.

I finally changed the license line.

When I try to install I get this message.
:: Checking syncterm integrity...
==> ERROR: license should be an array

Version 1.0 released as of August 5, 2015 -- the sources at are out of date, and the current sources are posted to SourceForge:

If someone have a better idea, let me know!

hehe, I guess now I have a good reason to not use .

Whenever they update the source code, they create a new syncterm-src.tgz file, and replace the old one.

So, if I use that file, whenever they update the code, the old md5sum will, of course, not be valid anymore, and the package will break.

Therefore, the choice is: should I use a really old version from sourceforge? Or should the package break every 3 days or something? (the previous was from day 19 and today, day 22 they released a new version)

Maybe I should upload the tgz to a server of mine, and every 2 weeks or something, update to the current version.
Or maybe I should just orphan this, so someone willing to be checking every 2 days if a new version and updating the package can take over it.

In the meantime, I have updated the package... but for how long I wonder? ;)
