Ah, thanks, I didn't notice there was already a racket package in community.

The racket package in [community] includes drracket, so providing a non-git version of drracket would be kind of a duplicate. I don't mind if you provide a drracket-git package.

Thanks. I would like to add packages for drracket 6.12 and git. Is this something you want to do yourself since you own racket-git, or are you happy for me to do it?

Apologies but I just started using arch so I am not familiar with package ownership policies.

The URL git:// is redirected for me to git://

Was confused by the version number:

Current stable is 6.12 and git HEAD is 6.90 at least.

There is no update needed. This is a git-package, so running makepkg will always fetch the newest sources from master. Updating without a reason is forbidden by the AUR-Guidelines.

Are you thinking about updating this package?
