Thank you @harmathy for adding me as a maintainer. I mailed @felixonmars asking if this package can be moved to [extra].

Hello @harmathy, since I wrote the patch and flagged the orphan request, can I be a maintainer of this package? Thanks.

I once sent an email to the maintainer to submit a patch but got no response, so I initiated an orphan request, but after a week it was still waiting to be approved, so I planned to paste my PKGBUILD here for now.

Hello. Please remove fontconfig and xorg-mkfontscale from dependencies. They are not needed anymore.

Thank you.

Looks like the source mirror has changed. or

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

This is the easiest to read Japanese font I have ever seen. It remains clear and legible on the terminal, even at small sizes... so why wasn't it added to [community], even though felixonmars showed interest? Isn't that the dream of every AUR packager?

Why does this package install the license files "COPYING_MPLUS.txt" and "COPYING_SAZANAMI.txt"?

felixonmars commented on 2014-06-03 02:53 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to move this package to [community]. Since you didn't reply to my email but are stilling updating the package, I'm not sure if you got my email or not. Anyway, please let me know if you think the package is inappropriate for the binary repos, or any other thoughts, thanks.
