Because there is nothing to update!

This is a VCS-like package that always installs the latest version (built for every SVN commit). It cannot be suffixed with -svn because it isn't built from the SVN but downloads a compiled jar file instead.

Please read the description and the PKGBUILD before you submit a request, thanks.

Thanks for the hint, jose1811.

Actually that modification was already in my experimental branch of the PKGBUILD which I've just committed and uploaded. Here are some of the new features:

- include man page
- extract logo from jar file
- handle restart of JOSM
- add global configuration file for JOSM (e.g. for memory limit)
- fix and extend desktop file

for some reason everytime i start geeqie it complains about this:
Desktop file '/usr/share/applications/josm.desktop' should not include extension in Icon key: 'josm.png'

could you please remove the extension from icon filename? thank you

Why have you flagged the package out-of-date? Just built it and everything is fine.

$ pacman -Qs josm-latest
local/josm-latest 8175-1

Nice stuff! But I don't see any benefit with this. You can get a Certum certificate for free, so this change will not help for security and it violates KISS.

Please consider enabling verification of the package using jarsigner. I abused the prepare() function for this.

SammysHP commented on 2013-10-19 17:12

Why? Is there any benefit? Also your url includes the version, but this PKGBUILD downloads always the latest version and determines the version afterwards with pkgver().

Btw: I took the url from the old PKGBUILD that I've adopted some days ago.

You should switch to using a direct link to the logo instead. (

I'd like to take over this package, if possible. Thanks.

Please avoid $startdir.
