I doubt very much there will ever be a release. But to make you happen, I added it anyway :)

Thanks for your time.

Note to other users: This change will make pacman complain once, that the package change is a downgrade. Since this is expected, you can ignore it and go ahead.

The use of 'r' prefix is explained in the same page, right above the git section

Hi Fabio, I added the git makedep, but I don't see the point of the r prefix, since this repo doesn't have releases.

Hello, this is missing git in makedepends and the pkgver don't have the 'r' prefix

Thanks for the heads up. I just removed the directive, since it defaults to aur-auto-vote.service anyway.

I had to move the 'Unit' key from the [Unit] section of aur-auto-vote.service to the [Timer] section, otherwise I got this warning:

Feb 09 19:44:03 buffalo systemd[1]: /etc/systemd/system/aur-auto-vote.timer:3: Unknown key name 'Unit' in section 'Unit', ignoring.

This is with systemd 244 (244.2-2-arch) installed.

@Strykar: Please read your error log carefully. There is nothing wrong with BeautifulSoup. I just tested my installation and it works without a problem.

Your error logs points to not beeing able to execute "pacman -Qmq". As to why this is I cannot say. Maybe you broke your pacman installation? Bad hardware?

Strykar commented on 2020-01-27 06:52

Is this still broken due to BeautifulSoup?

Not as long as everybody remembers to reinstall this package. Your votes are account bound, and they will most likely not reinstall a package that crashed their OS, and this vote will then be removed.

Note that you should not be forced to reinstall your OS because of a crashed package. Instead fix it from a live boot USB key.

Quick question: does this mean the packages that can crash an OS and require reinstallation of the OS will get more votes than the same packages that are stable?
