@m040601: Thanks. Corrected. The installed name has always been 'tsp' previously (see any version of the PKGBUILD file).

Thanks for providing this PKGBUILD

You have to be more carefull and pay more attention with this PKGBUILD

Such simple named executables like 'ts' 'tsp' , often colide with other ( more important) already installed stuff in /usr/bin/

You should do this check for such short and simple commands like, ex 'ts'

pacman -F ts

and indeed it collides with other stuff from the Arch Official Repos

extra/irssi 1.2.2-4
community/lout 3.40-2
community/moreutils 0.65-1 [installed]
community/ucblogo 6.1-1

So, you'll have to choose another name other than 'ts'.

We're talking about collision with official Arch Packages, not other Aur packages.

As you can see, in my case, because I had 'moreutils' installed, the 'task-spooler' installation aborts:

(1/1) checking for file conflicts                   [--------------------------] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
task-spooler: /usr/bin/ts exists in filesystem (owned by moreutils)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The link is invalid on 19 November 2020. It will load forever. I waited 5 minutes just to find the link isn't working.

For packages based on precompiled binary files it makes sense to include other architectures. Another example:

Convention is to append "-bin" to the package name (plexdrive --> plexdrive-bin).

I didn't know about this option, thank you.

I created a package that lists every architecture that has a precompiled binary available:
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'arm' 'armv6h' 'armv7h' 'aarch64')

"If instead a package can be compiled for any architecture, but is architecture-specific once compiled, specify all architectures officially supported by Arch, i.e. arch=('i686' 'x86_64')."

For building on ARM, you use the -A/--ignorearch option. They used to mention this in their Wiki.

Could you please add 'arm' on the architecture list? I just test this against an armv7h system and it worked flawlessly.
