EDIT: someone has also suggested:

...to discuss this issue in the aur mailinglist? Let's offload this decision to the arch TUs and implement whatever they think is appropriate. ...

ORIGINAL COMMENT:

May I suggest that the maintainer of this PKGBUILD talk and negotiate with the the maintainers of similar PKGBUILD's ?

With such a fast changing thing like youtube-dl and its variants, by having many eyeballs watching the same PKGBUILD's, this would also means less work for you, the maintainer.

There seems to be a lot of interest in using yt-dlp as a replacement for youtube-dl. This has led to a lot of PKGBUILD's being created in AUR, like mushrooms doing apparentely the same thing.

This:

  • confuses users, which one to install ? Which one will still be here maintained in x months ?
  • is a complete waste of man power and reduplicating work,
  • disperses user votes, maybe one day, with enough votes, yt-dlp could be an official Arch package,without any need for PKGBUILD.

We basicly only need a yt-dlp "normal one", "-git" one and eventually a "-bin" one.

With such a fast changing thing like youtube-dl, by having many eyeballs watching the same PKGBUILDS, this would also means less work for you, the maintainer.

Some more additionally facts:

  • yt-dlp is officially called ... hhh... "yt-dlp". It is not officially called "youtube-dlp"
  • ...

After discovering pandoc-bin I now no longer need to pull in 500 haskell dependencies that would otherwise be unneeded to build the youtube-dlp, so I will not be using this package… so disowning. :)
