thanks for taking charge of the package after it becoming orphan. Unfortunately it failed to install:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums... ... Passed LICENSE ... FAILED ... Passed brave-beta-bin.desktop ... Passed braveAbout.png ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! Error downloading sources: brave-beta-bin

I solved it by downloading the snapshot, then "updpkgsums", "makepkg -s" and finally installing it with pacman.

I don't know much about how it works, but did you forget to update the files' hashes?

This package has been flagged out-of-date for more than 2 weeks and I requested for it to be flagged as orphan earlier this morning.

The v1 is out, and given how important it is to keep the browser updated, I'd like to know if you are planning to maintain this package or not.

Personally, I already updated it using your PKGBUILD, and I don't mind doing that every now and then, but maybe others might appreciate being able to just use the AUR helper.

I made a mistake on the last package update. When you update this package it might say that a file failed the validity check. If you receive this error, clear your AUR helper's cache and try again.

Is anyone aware when brave will support widevine on linux?

this package should be conflict with brave-bin, not brave-beta-bin
