What about using the original web page as upstream webpage on the pkgbuild?

Also Im having problems downloading from sourceforge, is possible list either in a comment on the pkgbuild another source?

Edit: I think this is why I have problems also in other networks, at this point better add a non-sourceforge mirror just in case

@srand thanks for the suggestion. Install file was removed with no version bump.

No need for the .install file anymore, everything font-related that's done in there is handled by pacman hooks now.

@mgd: I can give a summary. One party in the discussion says that SHA256 is no better than MD5 because here a hash is used for error checking, not for security. So SHA256 is no better than any CRC.

Care to give a summary?
I can't read that bbs w/o registering beforehand (which I won't do for the sole purpose to read your link).

birdflesh commented on 2016-11-30 14:07

Respectfully, I won't be switching to SHA256.
Reasoning behind this decision can be found here:

Second what the previous commenter said. Please switch to sha256sums.

GI_Jack commented on 2016-11-23 21:54

MD5sums are sooo 1996.

SHA256 plz

hawaka commented on 2016-08-01 16:21

The md5 errors did occur for me too. They seem to only happen when I don't have mhash installd.
Maybe mhash should be added as a dependency for yaourt.

@Arup: Sourceforge is tmpy down
Edit pkgbuild to use mirror:

_sfpath="http://sourceforge.mirrorservice.org/c/co/corefonts/the%20fonts/final/"
