Please note that the build takes about 3 hours on my machine, and at two points of the build process (the two times libxul.so is linked) it fills my RAM and starts swapping. You might want to use the waterfox-current-bin package instead.

Thanks, I was wondering how much time it would take to build this.

Thank you ccorn, added them both to makedepends.

I needed to add libpulse to depends and lld to makedepends to make a chroot build succeed.

Thank you PongTea, fixed.

There is a typo in the Package details, Upstream URL: https://www.watefox.net/ Should be: https://www.waterfox.net/

Binary is called waterfox in case of both - Current and Classic, but official package names are waterfox-current and waterfox-classic. Naming package as „waterfox" is rather not very proper. If Current instead of would be stable and Classic beta, then it would be more proper...

The binary is called waterfox, like in the official distribution.

Shouldn't this package be named waterfox-current?
