Thank you for the great aurman package! Why did you change the expac dependencies from expac to the AUR package expac-git?

Redi commented on 2018-06-13 08:26

Dunno I like aurman. It's fast and simple and I think that polygamma does one hell of a job. Keep it up my man.

Git has indeed many useful options, but it's little value added if they are not needed. I doesn't offer one option, though. Simplicity. With tarballs I get click at source in AUR web interface and I will be prompted with download option. It's more, umm, static. Don't get me wrong, if polygamma prefers to use git, it's fine as it is, it builds fine and stuff, just it's a bit, say, unorthodox way of doing it. And, of course, to allow all those fancy options git must fetch all objects. Not that it makes any practical difference with project of this size, of course. And without signed tags, tarballs give stronger guarantee that source is valid, as in, it hasn't changed since PKGBUILD has been submitted, I insist. :-)

Also regarding the request to use tarballs: unless you're using PGP signatures (due to limitations with signing git tags) there's no benefit at all, and git offers advantages like the ability to use cherry-pick or other useful commands.

I've already removed scores of spam from this page. The next guy who makes personal attacks or feels entitled to support without using the proper channels as kindly requested by the author will get his account suspended indefinitely.

Anyone asking for help using makepkg, e.g. "how do I import PGP keys", will find their comment silently deleted by Eschwartz. This is not the makepkg or general help forums, this is the aurman package page.

Guys, really, polygamma is developing and maintaining aurman for free, as in gratis. You're not paying for it. The least you can do, is follow the requests of the maintainer to report bugs or request new features.

If you think you can just use gratis software and requests whatever you want, whenever and wherever you want without listening to the requests of software maintainers, your parents have spoiled you way too much.

And yes it is too much to go to github to report bugs/behaviour, what exactly do you think the comments here are for?

They are for reporting issues with the PKGBUILD. Not for reporting bugs for upstream.

Thank you very much. I think that aurman is a great package!
