Besides all the downloads having moved to a different filename scheme, the upstream is aggressively blocking non-browser downloads. If anybody knows how to make a curl work for these files let me know and I'll get it setup here. Note for example the one source currently listed works fine from a browser but not from curl.

I have been able to make it work with this,

DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -b '__cfduid=db393f5640a42541d09fb496e44eb58dd1611209318;\ csrftoken=4ea5c8xVjINrZG36JaFXre8gHL845obvuIwZgUfY8t9kcFT63CPamDgpYokMzQlJ;\ sessionid=lax0bk5w8xgc0wsu1ktpr8xhzk2uz01o' -A Mozilla/5.0\ (Windows\ NT\ 10.0\;\ rv\:78.0)\ Gecko/20100101\ Firefox/78.0 -fC - -o %o %u")

I opened the url once in a browser and copied the cookie set by the server. Then, I set this cookie in each request. Make sure to properly escape the spaces in the cookie.

And just Mozilla for the UA header didn't seem to work so I also copied UA header from my browser. Again, Properly escaped and then it just worked. :)

It's not a good general solution for this but it might be helpful in case someone just needs to install this package.

@librewish Did you want to help maintain this? I'd be happy to add you ... especially if you know of a working download URL / Curl command combo that works.

@vishvas Those fonts are from a different source and should be placed in a different package.

Also, there seems to be an error: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading http://www.devanagarifonts.net/fonts/download/Aakar-Regular.zip Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build ttf-devanagarifonts. ==> Restart building ttf-devanagarifonts ?

Hi!

Can you please include fonts from http://svayambhava.blogspot.com/p/siddhanta-devanagariunicode-open-type.html : Siddhanta, Chandas, Uttara - very useful for Sanskrit rendering. Also Sanskrit 2003 from https://www.oah.in/Sanskrit/itranslator2003.htm#dls ?
