I am moving ttf-opensans into community. Thank you for maintaining this package!

OK, starting with 1.101-1, files are fetched from RawGit with a specific commit.

I have downloaded the packages on 3 separate machines, and the sha256sums in 1.10-4 match:


We can't include the fonts with the package, as it exceeds the AUR blob limit. Google doesn't tag their fonts on GitHub, so we would need a ttf-opensans-git package to use those (or maybe we can use a specific commit here). I suspect there is a new version that Google is rolling out incrementally, but since they don't version their URLs, is hard for us to determine.

FiX: you're not supposed to flag a package out of date because it doesn't work. Well the reason it doesn't work is actually a newer version, isn't it? Why don't they host the files in a normal way?

The issue persists. I can of course fix this for myself, but a general solution is needed.

It is unfortunate that the archives do not include version numbers, so that the archive names for different versions are identical.

The checksums did not match for me (with 1.10-3), now they do match for me (1.10-4). We may not be able to use Google for the source files.

@felix.s, thanks! Updated to 1.10-3.

Font cache updating is done via a pacman hook now. I think you can drop the install file and all the dependencies.
