Reverse dependency pytg has been discontinued since 2016,

and telegram-history-dump-git's upstream is abandoned since 2018.

Therefore it is safe to delete all these dead packages from AUR.

I know there are newer, working Telegram bots, and I think I saw other Telegram CLI apps (though I've never used either kind).

Edit: also Telegram Desktop has its own history exporter ("history dumper") utility built-in.

It didn't ask for phone number on startup, and will crash when trying to get any message.

Seem that this upstream is also deprecated:

Why doesn't it have aarch64 ? Does it lead to a problem on building it for aarch64 ?

Upstream is dead, last commit was from 2016... There's another fork that looks promising and this should probably switch to, but it doesn't look like that's being updated either. Significant number of PRs and Issues on the upstream repo.

Thanks for the suggestion. I updated the source to the fork by kenorb-contrib.

amo commented on 2020-02-12 21:43 (UTC)

As mentioned in this issue, there is a fork that is more up-to-date than the source used for this package. The sources for this package have not seen any commit in years. Maybe we can use the fork as source?
