I requested a merge but unfortunately it got rejected. I think that the decision is discussable but still, I don't have the final word here and I don't have energy left to dig deeper into this one.

Also, it seems to be "completely normal". :-)

@Varakh, @Pete Debian, Ubuntu & Fedora are all using my fork / packaging v2.3.2 as well - so there really is no logical reason not to repoint it and the updated branch as the 'onedrive' package.

The last 'skilion' release was on 10 Sep 2018, prior was on 21 Jan 2018. The last time 'skilion' actually responded to an issue was 10 Sep 2018 by closing off some open issue tickets which was fixed by the v1.1.3 release.

There has hardly ever been any interaction with anyone over issues raised nor discussion around PR's that have been submitted.

@blue995 Your 100% CPU issue is resolved - refer to for details or more specifically

@Scimmia Last time this was raised you basically have said 'things don't work that way' - I think you have enough evidence from the wider community that the 'skilion' branch is dead (and has been despite the very minor releases in 2018) for close to 2 years now given I have been patching, maintaining my fork & actively supporting users for approximately that length of time.

I agree with Varakh, that it would be ideal if this package would follow the abraunegg branch. I'm now maintaining the onedrive-abraunegg package, and you are free to use that PKGBUILD here if you like. In that case, I would remove that package.

Also, I'm willing to be co-maintainer/take over the maintenance of this package if you like.

Varakh commented on 2019-04-03 08:42

I'd vote for changing this package(name) to the fork abraunegg did as it is actively maintained, contains fewer bugs and can be used in daily production.

@Scimmia I'd like to ask you to drop maintainer ship or have a common understanding with Depau about it.

I think every AUR user searching for this functionality will have benefits. Otherwise we, as an Arch Community, propose that new users should use the old service with tons of bugs and this just by the naming of the package.

abraunegg's code is indeed more up to date; it's currently 116 commits ahead of upstream and has most of the issues piled up in upstream's repo fixed.

I vote for his fork.

By the way, I forked this package and made one with his fork: link.

@abraunegg if you want to maintain it I can transfer it to you.

"You declare that it's abandoned and you're the new upstream because he doesn't respond quick enough. Things don't work that way."

I would say > 12 months non response to issues logged by other users despite some small commits (in Feb 2018) that did not fix user defects would almost constitute a 'im not interested anymore'. A response to posts and questions raised by myself and others asking 'have you abandoned this' have gone unanswered despite efforts.

I have no issue you in providing broken software that contains significant defects to the Arch Linux community (defects that have been fixed) - you are only doing yourself a disservice with your poor attitude below.

The attached source code is not the latest and contains a significant number of defects most notably unable to handle the OneDrive API change that generates the error 'Key not found: lastModifiedDateTime' for OneDrive Business Accounts. The 'skilion' code appears to have been abandoned by the original author and contains issues that have not been fixed.

If you wish to use the latest code which contains numerous fixes and enhancements you need clone from here:

The monitoring feature of this onedrive client consumes a lot of battery life. I enabled and started the onedrive.service and my cpu usage was often at 100 % just because of the onedrive monitoring service. There was nothing that the client had to pull or push and this behaviour didn't change. I deactivated the service now until this behaviour gets fixed. Besides its enormous power consumption the feature works great though. Thanks for that. :)
