I heard some stories that the people of Sourceforge are injecting spyware into their packages. I don't have the old version so I cannot verify if this is the case here. So yeah, let's switch to github.

Maybe we can use the archive from github ?

I like the idea of SABnzbd running as its own user for security purposes, but I just see one thing that would allow the sabnzbd user to gain access to another user: is in sabnzbd's home directory where it as full permissions to it. is invoked by sabnzbd.desktop which is run by other users. If SABnzbd was ever exploited, it could change the contents of to something malicious and it would be run under other users. Perhaps should be in /usr/lib.

There's also a typo in sabnzbd.install.

==> If you want to associate .nzb-files with SABnzbd, run 'xdg-mime default sabnzbd.desktop applications/x-nzb'
should be:
==> If you want to associate .nzb-files with SABnzbd, run 'xdg-mime default sabnzbd.desktop application/x-nzb'

(applications should be without an s)

Is anyone else experiencing an issue where the ETAs are no longer listed? I just get "checking" instead of the time to download.

Sourceforge link isn't working for some reason. I used this instead:

Can you add this in as a(n optional) dependency? par2cmdline-tbb
It enables par2 multi-threading.

The install script tries to run things that are not dependencies:

/tmp/alpm_jkHuMg/.INSTALL: line 12: xdg-mime: command not found
/tmp/alpm_jkHuMg/.INSTALL: line 13: xdg-icon-resource: command not found

Maybe add in an 'if [[ -f /usr/bin/xdg-mime ]]' around the command before running it and add it as an opt depend?
