Your smartass arrogant patch to generate the documentation using html2text is making compilation fail.

sudokode commented on 2014-06-10 22:36

Thanks. Updated. Also using a different pkgver now.

Replaced lynx with html2text as a makedep. If you don't even want that, see the PKGBUILD for more info.

Hm. Maybe the svn is down too. Who knows? I'll fix up the irssi-svn package too anyway.

sudokode commented on 2013-07-31 16:12

It appears as though the irssi git repo is down. They've either stopped caring about it and just gone back to svn or didn't really plan on moving to git as it was just a mirror of the svn. Check out the irssi-svn package.

Would you mind updating the PKGBUILD with this one?

I have updated the PKGBUILD to use pacman 4.1 features.
