Don't you think its too much hassle to verify the checksum changed and manually increment the license numver? I used to update the checksum every rebuild, but looks like this wasn't working for all users, so I decided to SKIP license file checks.

If you SKIP the checksum you're ignoring license updates.

Please version the local license file name instead and bump it whenever the content changes (google-talkplugin-license-1.html::, google-talkplugin-license-2.html::, etc).

The build fails at validating the sha1sum of google-talkplugin-license.html.

Any idea why google doesn't update stable links on page?

This package shows up on the list of packages that need to be rebuit after the recent switch to C++ dual ABI.
Since this package seems directly based on Google binaries this might need to be escalated with Google if that wasn't done already.

This plugin is still needed for Firefox (42.0) and works well once installed.

As far as I know, not for chrome, but still needed for Firefox.

Is this plugin even needed any more?

Did google disable old clients? I'm having trouble to chat with people that are using older versions of this plugin since last week. Did they transition to WebRTC perhaps?
