I looked for a bit and it seems that it was removed recently, 12 days ago https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/commit/cdeb988627caed4616fbd5bee8131336ebe0fba2#diff-3e341d2d9c67be01819b25b25d5e53ea3cdf3a38d28846cda85a195eb9b7203a

Guess I will wait for answer from buttersink-git maintainer and if he doesnt respond within 2 weeks, then I will try to readd that package, should be trivial to do. It seems that that applications has open ticket for python3 support, but no progress was made in 3 years. https://github.com/AmesCornish/buttersink/issues/56

Ok, last comments were really off topic. Now, I think that the initial issue about maintainership is still not 100% clear ;p

Well it should be feasible automatically. I mean when you look at that package, the site itself shows that the dependency is missing, so the info is already available on AUR, just not sent to proper authorities. Though I guess, it's often easier for someone to fix a PKGBUILD than to start from scratch so maybe keeping them is fine.

Thank you for making the AUR better!

Well, as for the "here should be a policy to not keep broken packages on AUR (for longer than a certain time)" Probably noone saw that package and we are the first to bother check what happened.

When I have free time (so almost 24/7 lately) i go through old packages, search random keywords and just make requests to delete or try to fix manually if it's trivial. Small changes but I believe it is for the better.

I actually came across this package by searching python2- and sorting by least recently updated.

(also left comment on buttersink package, so I guess i will wait couple days and if no response, then deletion request could be filled)

You're very welcome!

Honestly I don't remember why I installed it. I only adopted it because I was annoyed my AUR manager kept complaining it was unmaintained. But as you can see from the history, I actually never did anything with it before today.

I think it would make sense to fix or remove buttersink-git. There should be a policy to not keep broken packages on AUR (for longer than a certain time). As for this package, as long as it builds, I see no particular reason to remove it; more choice without extra work is awesome!

Yes, thanks for quick update. I do not think that this needs to be "maintained" as there was no release in years. Feel free to disown, I will stay subscribed to comments/notifications so if someone marks it out of date I could always push some changes.

The only package that needs this buttersink-git is also missing dependencies. Maybe worth to delete it and then this could also be deleted. Let me know what you think.

Is this more acceptable?

I actually don't use this anymore and would be happy to let you take over if you want.

Hello gee, could you update this PKGBUILD to modern standards? any python2- package from official repos could be used as example.

NicoHood commented on 2016-09-10 07:18

Could you please add those archtictures?
'arm' 'armv6h' 'armv7h'

Isnt it also possibly that this package is compatible with 'any'?
