And I assume PR's are still welcome? ;)

Yes, aurman is still going to be developed and it will still be open source. You may surely continue to use it, as long as I am using Arch and thus the AUR, I need a helper, which is aurman.

But for the enduser that is not me, it may be a better choice to use a AUR helper with non-closed GitHub issues. As already said, I would recommend yay.

I'm sorry to hear that. =(

But you will keep releasing new versions of aurman? (I understand you will not listen any suggestion or feature request, but I'm OK with the aurman features and how aurman works right now).

That's a shame, it's always been a very straightforward and useful AUR helper for me (and many others by the looks of it).

@mprom Why not just makepkg -sci as seen in the Wiki? :)

For anyone arriving here because they've started receiving the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/aurman", line 6, in <module>

    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'aurman==2.17' distribution was not found and is required by the application

This is because Python released a major new update, which you installed, and thus all python packages, including aurman, need to be rebuilt to be able to work again.

To fix this, download the snapshot from the link in the Package Actions above, cd to the unzipped directory and do old-school AUR installation dance of makepkg -Acs followed by sudo pacman -U aurman-2.17.1.1-any.pkg.tar.xz

After that, aurman should work again.

i just want to thank polygamma for this helper

eschwartz commented on 2018-07-09 17:15

That's got nothing to do with aurman.

dawcek commented on 2018-07-09 16:54

Thanks @Eschwartz. I set this option like you suggested. There is error related to that as normal user I cannot write anything in system directory /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
