You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package

The package uses the sources available at:

https://github.com/popcorn-official/popcorn-desktop

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

https://dl.nwjs.io/

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

@florosus unflaged the package; this package is built from source, it is not a binary repackaging.
Also, the "-2" is the PKGBUILD version, the "0.3.9" is the actual package version.
The package is using the same source code, but this build it from scratch, the other uses prebuilt binaries.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/popcorntime-bin/ has the latest version (0.3.9-6).
This package is a REDUNDANT DUPLICATE copy of the one from the link above, using an archived old version (0.3.9-2).

This is cluttering up the AUR. This outdated package should be removed.

cesasol is posting propaganda on behalf of popcorntime.ag as they have been on other packages (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/popcorntime-bin/). There is no evidence of popcorntime.sh being a honeypot.
