In Manjaro debtap -u does give errors, and it does not work asking to run debtap -u .

I was trying to port YUMI to AUR from and as I noticed it is still not here, and as I am a newbie making packages if someone does it before I do, thanks in advance.

OK, then.

>If there is no license, you just press Enter.
The problem was no feedback after I do that, so I thought debtap was erroneously waiting for more input :) Hadn't realized the notebook fans are working harder ;)

Sorry for not being clear, GPL2 should be used in the PKGBUILD of debtap itself because that's what it's called in the Archlinux license package.

GPLv2 and GPL2 is the same thing. If there is no license, you just press Enter. The same applies for packager name, if you don't want to enter any name, you just press Enter.

Seems to be a bug: debtap just waits for more input forever after asking for license. Btw, what should be done if there's no license?

how do you installed and how do you run debtap?

Always outputs error, " mkdir: cannot create directory *-working-directory No such file or directory"

Exits after erasing the contents of the debtap-1.5.2 folder (including debtap itself) and leaving a "--1-.pkg.tar" file behind.

You're right, I've deleted the source and relaunched the download. Now it passes the validity check.
My bad, sorry about that.
