In the latest release of this package I've introduced a workaround to force fresh downloads whenever we bump the package release number, not just the version. This should work around most people's caching issues resulting from upstream's replacing files without changing the filename or versions.

If you hit a checksum error now please flag this package as out of date.

@Vaporeon No, one PKGBUILD should not provide multiple projects just because the releases happen to all be in a folder. The projects are not in the same source repository and they are not versioned together. Some of them change and get updated independently from others. Also they don't all have the same licensing.

Sorry for message spam, but most of the PDF files in the directory [1] contain fonts. Should they not be packaged too, or should this be provided another package? I think it would make sense for one pkgbase to provide them all.

Also, the otf file can be obtained using pdfdetach provided by the poppler package.

I re-flagged this out of date, qubidt was right, the latest version is 14.00 and it is provided via a PDF attachment.

@Thaodan Your OOD flag is invalid, this packaging is up to date. You have an old checkout of this git packaging repo that before the package base name changed, you need to clear that out and start over with a fresh checkout of this repo. If you are using some helper like yay it probably cached it somewhere.

please remove the out-of-date flag

Sorry the AURAPI returned the wrong repo url, I used the old repo with the wrong checksum.

@windowz414 Your OOD flag is incorrect, this package is up to date. You are not even using the current repository for this package: you have a cached one from before the AUR package got renamed. Please clear your source caches and build from this Git repository. Note the filename will have the $pkgrel in the source filename when you get the right one.

Download works fine for me (tried with Firefox and makepkg), I get the same sha512sums of the PKGBUILD

Flagged out-of-date. ttf-symbola fails building at source verification with this output;

EDIT: Somehow building the base package (font-symbola) and installing it that way does the trick. Weird.
