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? ;)

Why are you using the source from sourceforge, instead of from ?

The one in sourceforge is so old and outdated, and the one from the above provided link includes support for SSH as part of the distribution.

Also, keep in mind, using this, you would need to set MANPREFIX=/usr/share, otherwise for some reason it defaults to /usr/man/man1/*
