Are these dependencies really needed? I have installed multiple other ttf fonts and they don't require them.

I think that the web.archive.org suggestion by nishant is a really good one. It also allows to add Tahoma32.exe and thus make the package more complete.

For successful download, I had to change the download path to https://web.archive.org/web/20020124085641/http://www.microsoft.com/typography/downloads

For successful download, I had to change "http" to "https" for the font source urls. HTH

What about using the original web page as upstream webpage on the pkgbuild?
https://web.archive.org/web/20020124085641/http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fontpack/default.htm

Also Im having problems downloading from sourceforge, is possible list either in a comment on the pkgbuild another source?

Edit: I think this is why I have problems also in other networks, at this point better add a non-sourceforge mirror just in case

@srand thanks for the suggestion. Install file was removed with no version bump.

No need for the .install file anymore, everything font-related that's done in there is handled by pacman hooks now.

@mgd: I can give a summary. One party in the discussion says that SHA256 is no better than MD5 because here a hash is used for error checking, not for security. So SHA256 is no better than any CRC.

Care to give a summary?
I can't read that bbs w/o registering beforehand (which I won't do for the sole purpose to read your link).
