Please, replace the line source :




because the unauthenticated git protocol is no longer supported

Otherwise, this package does not build :

      error downloading sources: you-get-git 
          context: exit status 1

I'm leaving this package to switch to youtube-dl.

midgard: it's quoted.

On line 37 of the PKGBUILD, there's an unquoted $pkgdir.

There is a "you-get" package if official repo. you should add "you-get" to conflict and add privodes=(you-get) for it

That 'wrong' (?) idea is what I addressed. Maybe I'll pulse the mailing list for you. Upstream is GitHub like most other -git pkgs in AUR. PS, YouTube duplication in Description line.

I mean, the result package users builds will have a good version string, not the source package. I don't quite remember why I invoke Python. Maybe because there were no tags when I first packaged it. I've already changed to use latest tag and commit date to make up a version string. If the upstream changes their tag name convention, an update for the PKGBUILD is likely to be necessary :-)

A -git pkg has no version beyond the last commit / tag / whatever. It's a 'rolling version' and meaningless by definition. Pacaur offers a special flag (--devel) just to build these. If you do a -git PKGBUILD right you will almost never need to change it. Have you looked at other -git pkgs in AUR? If you really want to version it this way, the whole pkg should be renamed you-get-03-git which is kinda nuts but doable. At least that is my understanding, I could be somewhat off, but maybe you should write the AUR mailing list about it and ask? Thanks

I'd like to make it easy to know which upstream version it is and how recent it's updated. But, ahhhh, the upstream is naming its version with a date....I'll try again... Using the hash in version isn't good, as pacman can't compare them correctly.

The pkgver() looks complex and invokes Python. Why not use pkgver ideas shown on wiki?
