@sebstar The Google Fonts repository is not up to date with the current release. It is also very difficult to use as an upstream source because they do not tag releases or coorelate commits with releases in almost any way. When possible it is better to use actual upstream sources with proper release cycles rather than repackaging the GF repository which is actually a downstream packaging release itself.

Why did this package change the source from the original https://github.com/google/fonts repo to the fork https://github.com/Ancymonic/Signika ? I can see that the github account Ancymonic (apparently) belongs to the original author. But it is not documented in the comments of this AUR package why the repo got changed.

It looks like version 2.00 was released over a year ago. Please update this package.

Please remove the obsolete xorg-fonts-encodings dependency and set the license field to just =('OFL').

Following upstream changes [1,2] we need to clean deps array.

It addition to xorg-font-utils please drop the fontconfig and xorg-font-encodings dependencies. Font package should have no dependencies except in special cases, which this font is not. All those things are long obsolete and solved other ways.

Also the license field should be just =('OFL').

The package xorg-font-utils has been removed from the Arch repositories, this package cannot be built and installed anymore.

No need to for install file to run fc-cache. This is already run by the hook at /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/fontconfig.hook.
