This AUR Biuld is frustating.

This package is a chore for any package maintainer because of the frequent updates and the way it is distributed.

@FabioLolix, I'd just go ahead and maintain this like a git package, skipping the checksums and generating the pkgver automatically. Then users can just update the package from the AUR whenever they feel the urge to do so. I've uploaded a PKGBUILD which does this here:

Note that this uses wget and grep/sed to extract the current version number from the author's website. This might need tweaking when the layout of changes.

Man, this package is nearly unmaintained. Checksums don't match, updates need fresh install and so on. Worst maintainer.

at the very least, all URLs should be HTTPS-based

Moo-Crumpus commented on 2020-06-10 07:58

skipping the signature is no option, honestly.

@emmerkar I think it probably has to have SKIP for the sha256sum for the package tar file unless it is going to be updated every release which has not been the case in the past.

sha256ssum for x86-64 package should be upgraded to 504769596aaebe61808daf08e603ccbf06582e6b909ef7390c141098e23b26b2
