You should only change the $pkgrel when the contents of the installed package changes. This should not be case when simply changing the $source.

The upstream url is broken. You should better link to:

The dev should be tagging the versions in her repo. GitHub automatically provides source tarballs for tags.

Anyways, 3.6 was committed 6 months ago :P

Might as well, I don't have much in the way of downtime anymore (thanks to a colocation), but I should probably do so anyways.

You could use GitHub to store the "compiled" packages. That would both take load off your server, and, if not prevent, decrease the downtime for the files. :)

Yeah, sadly is hosted on a machine running in a basement, and due to the hurricane that hit New England it went down for a little while. I haven't had a chance to get it back up since I live about three hours away from there. It will be up by Friday night, though. In the meantime you can use the git repo to get the latest:

I'm looking into better hosting options for as well, so hopefully in the future this won't be such an issue. Thanks for using the software!

Yeah, it seems to go down occasionally. I'll throw up a mirror if it's not up in a day or two.

I can't connect to, seems that the host is down.

thanks for providing an AUR package for this :)

mutantmonkey commented on 2010-06-23 23:12

Updated. Sorry about that, I forgot to update the description when 3.0 came out, which was when it was ported to Python.

Vithon commented on 2010-06-23 23:09

3.1 is the newest version.

Oh, and in the description: "whatmp3 is a small perl script" it's a python script. :P

I keep getting corrupt files from using this script...

Albums seem to convert to 320 ok, but then when i try to mp3gain some tracks, they get skipped as it says they're corrupt. Then i convert with soundconverter and it's fine....Weird stuff...

mutantmonkey commented on 2010-04-05 02:32

Updated. Thanks for the feedback!

1.) what about ogg? maybe add vorbis-tools to optdepends or depends?
2.) arch=(any)? I mean, this is a perl-script...

Thanks for the package, and thanks in advance for fixing ;)
