OK, after some investigation:

perl-json-pp and perl-libwww are core requirements, used for fetching programmes from the BBC servers, so can't be optional. The same goes for perl-lwp-protocol-https and perl-json-pp (although perl-json-pp is part of perl itself these days anyway).

perl-mojolicious is used to speed up indexing. I can make it optdepends, but you almost certainly want it.

My understanding was that perl-mojolicious was used for the indexing, and perl-json-pp is built in to Perl these days, but I'll revisit the requirements and see.

Maybe perl-json-pp, perl-libwww and perl-mojolicious should be optional dependencies, as these are only used for the cgi? Particularly as mojolicious is only available in AUR.

The FTP (and the rest of infradead.org) appears to be down again. Is there a particular reason we can't use the archive stored on Github for this package?

chrisallison commented on 2015-06-03 23:22

twiddle the version to 2.94
makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD
makepkg
pacman -U

All good, works fine again. Thanks dinkypumpkin and pippin

Thanks. As an alternative to the FTP archive, you could also use the GitHub releases, e.g., https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/archive/v2.92.tar.gz (the occasional DDoS outage notwithstanding).

alexmerry commented on 2015-03-27 10:24

Done. I guess the original FTP server just went down for a few days.

satanselbow was wrong - the upstream location did not change. Please don't point your package to my tarball for Homebrew - revert to the original location. Thanks.
