@caleb: done. I have no problem adding anything to make your package work, just say it in a clear way.

@munzirtaha I see you copied in some of the tweaks I made, so thanks for that. Most of what is left is coding stylistic differences. The one thing that is critical to the outcome is the conflicts=('ttf-sil-fonts<=6') I added to help ease the transition for people using old builds of the ttf-sil-fonts package back when it provided this font to now depending on this package. Without it many AUR helpers will try to install this first before updating the other package and hence running into conflicts. Even doing it manually produces errors that people don't know how to fix without just removing packages.

PSA: I've started hosting this (and all other SIL fonts) as prebuilt packages in my repository for those that want to install in using pacman without messing around with building from the AUR.

(Note the version I'm hosting is found on my Github mirror and has a newer pkgrel because it is updated with a few minor packaging issue cleaned up. If added as a co-maintainer I'll be happy to update the package here.)

Hey, I just adopted the ttf-sil-fonts package and am in the process of converting it to a meta-package that just depends on all the others. I am also posting the rest of the missing SIL font packages. It would be nice if this could be tweaked in a couple ways to normalize it. Would you consider adding me as a co-maintainer so I can take cake of this?

@blazeeboy: Fixed now. Don't know why they keep changing the link too often lately!

The source zip file URl seems to be incorrect, sil.org responds with 404.

Hi, looks like download link is slightly wrong.
