@mattatobin could you also clarify what is meant by the term "squatting"?

@mattatobin: You should clarify what parts of you claim violates any branding rules.

@mattatobin This is a pkgbuild not a package, which means it is not redistributing the source or binary in any way.

The only thing located here is the name 'basilisk' and some urls. Is the package not allowed to use the name. I'm not familiar with trademark law and all that to I'm not sure on the legality of things.

The desktop file which you specifically mention is hosted here I would recommend opening an issue there instead.

You do realize this package is completely insane. I want you to remove any remaining Basilisk branding and use of the name including in the desktop file and this very package from AUR that you are obviously squatting on.

So after a considerable amount of trial and error, I have made a PKGBUILD for the UXP repository noted by @vonPalitroque that I hope works for more than just me. As you can see by the comments I've left, I'm not totally sure what I'm doing. I pulled a few bits and pieces from old PKGBUILDs for Firefox, and cleaned it up quite a bit otherwise. Note that this requires two new patches. Also as noted in this, there is nothing magical about the commit chosen, it's just the most recent one at this time.




I've tried to document everything I did as well as possible, my apologies if I did anything dumb.

There's actually a bigger issue with this particular PKGBUILD. The repository it pulls from [1] has been deprecated in favor of [2]. Given that [1] was deprecated in commit 868d263f228a98581c35e8b1b29f0e0f2d9d4b07, I suggest we move this PKGBUILD to use [2] at some stable commit. I can try helping port the PKGBUILD, but I am somewhat short in time now.
