For anyone who is wondering what programs are provided by this package, there are "abc2abc", "abc2midi", "abcmatch", "mftext", "midi2abc", and "yaps".

1) Updated to latest upstream

2) Build issue is a bug in the source, patched it in the package. No idea where to report bug to upstream maintainer.

I'm getting the following errors from ld:

/usr/bin/ld: toabc.o:(.bss+0xd7c): multiple definition of ingrace'; parseabc.o:(.bss+0x788): first defined here /usr/bin/ld: drawtune.o:(.bss+0x168): multiple definition ofingrace'; parseabc.o:(.bss+0x788): first defined here

My suspicion is that the changeover to gcc ver. 10 (2020-05-08) is causing these problems because another AUR package (denemo) is also throwing ld "multiple definition" errors.

Marking out-of-date.

@cmsigler Fixed until they move/delete/change/break it again.

I tried upgrading abcmidi today (2019-09-27). The download failed :(

"==> ERROR: Failure while downloading " Aborting..."

User leesavide seems to have deleted the abcmidi repository completely(?!). Also, the webpage to "Download the latest abcMIDI" seems to have changed to:

On that page it says:

"The latest version is August 10 2019"

so there may be a newer version(s)?

I hope all this helps! Thank you for maintaining abcmidi :)

@SpotlightKid sorry for the slow update. I now build and install all binaries.

This package is missing the 'yaps' binary (but the man page and the help text are installed). Just remove the 'binaries=...' part from the 'make' invocations, it is not needed anymore, AFAICS.
