Thank you for sharing this. The blog is very informative.

Thanks for dealing with the spam and for the PKGBUILD feedback. I have picked up the package on the fly a while ago but obviously didn't give it enough attention, mea culpa entirely. That ghastly "unzip" in depends sticks out like a sore thumb, I've managed to surprise myself by sticking it in there... :)

By the way, "unzip" is only needed for extracting the sources so it should be a makedepends, not a depends.

Also fontconfig, xorg-fonts-* is not actually needed by the font file, it is only needed in order to generate the fontconfig/mkfontdir caches... but the applications which need those caches also need fontconfig and usually need xorg-fonts-misc, so the dependencies on those are kind of redundant.

Comment spam duly deleted, now that new aurweb features let us follow spam from package to package.

Maybe we'll even get a good option to help users report spam, cf.

But in the meantime, please feel free to leave a comment on that bug or on the aur-general mailing list, to let us know.

See my working PKGBUILD here :
Plus, source is not extractible with bsdtar, but with unzip
