Thanks fsckd -- updated.

There's no need for both md5sums and sha256sums arrays in the PKGBUILD. Pick one and stick to it. ;)

Orphaned the package. Feel free to adopt it.

Hi,

PKGBUILD updated:
- removed makedepends
- changed licence to "apache"
- removed "|| return 1" from the PKGBUILD as it is not needed anymore.

cheers.

Thanks to thestinger and rransom for pointing out first two things.

license=('MIT') should be license=('apache') - see http://www.cosmix.org/software/

the top of the page says: "Software provided on this page can be downloaded, used and distributed for free. It is provided under the MIT licence, unless otherwise indicated. Click here for the full licensing terms."

but read the text next to the droid fonts

/makedepends/d

makepkg unpacks the ZIP archives using bsdtar, not unzip.

Sorry -- my browser was loading the old PKGBUILD from its cache. Clicking the 'refresh' button loaded the fixed one.

Thanks for applying the fixes!

Strange. I have done all the things you mentioned. with fixed lines in the PKGBUILD. I understand everything you mentioned in the post.
I guess that the page was not reloaded properly when you looked for the changes in the PKGBUILD. Please try if reloading the page via searching would change anything.

The arch= line is still incorrect, and the inappropriate optdepends= line is still present.

arch=(i686 x86_64) means that the PKGBUILD can be used on both architectures, but that the resulting package can only be used on the architecture on which it was built.

arch=(any) means that the PKGBUILD can be used on all architectures *and* the resulting package can be used on all architectures. This is the appropriate setting for a font package, which contains only machine-independent files.

The optdepends= line is intended to indicate that a package will not be completely functional unless the optional dependency is installed. This package works fine without ttf-droid installed, so ttf-droid should not be listed as an optional dependency of this package.
