For a couple of weeks the updates of earlybird stopped working: sha512 sums are not right.

$ sha512sum thunderbird-51.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2

$ grep sha512sums_x86_64 PKGBUILD

I don't understand why, because this package is being updated often.

Hello, folks!

It was long time for me till my patch for Open Build System was applied on finally, so now I moved building of the package to there.

So, if u used my previous repo, you can easily use new one

SigLevel = Never
Server =$arch

Web view to project is here:

Now I hope will no more broken hashsums and mess in logs since I rewrite my scripts to automatic update this and few other packages to use OBS instead of building locally and push to my own old repo.

I hope u enjoy this improvement.

Also git of the package now contains 2 files, & PKGBUILD.template which I use to generate PKGBUILD using fresh information from vendor sites. U can as well use it yourself, just run

Have a lucky day!

@AlfredoRamos okay, you may also try cower if you'd like to automatize package downloading and building with makepkg. I use myself pure makepkg mostly and `aura`.

@AlexTalker pacaur, I will use makepkg from now on.

@AlfredoRamos strange, what do you use to install the package?

Hi, folks!
For everybody who's lazy to build on his x64 this package(and firefox-aurora and firefox-aurora-ru too) I've create a repo since anyway packages that build on automatical version may be reused :)
Just use the lines for yours pacman.conf:
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
Server =

Have a lucky build!
