As noted previously rg3 redirected correctly to this date, but I updated the URLs now.

The date on the pkgver is the last tag available in git, usually a release they made if I'm not mistaken since they just use dates as version numbers.

Please update the upstream and download URL, it is (not rg3).

Also, the latest commit is from April 11th, but this package builds version 2020.03.24.r16.00eb865b3-1. What is wrong there?

The github URL has been changed to The old url redirects, but you may want to update the package.

@pbnoxious Hi, it seems you are mistaken :) -git packages build the latest version and update when the PKGBUILD needs changing. As far as I can tell the package builds and works just fine currently.

Hi, if I am not mistaken this needs to be updated. Youtube doesn't work for me with this version anymore and there is a newer version (via the -U switch) available that works fine.

I've deleted a spam comment from @shiskey.

Don't do that again or your account will be suspended.

Add phantomjs-bin as optional dependency. It's needed for openload

@cb474 The reason is that's the version that makepkg pulled when I pushed the package. The reason is, there is no need to update the PKGBUILD since it 100% works still, it's unnecessary and takes time. This isn't even a package where that version "incorrectly" stays as the wrong version number due to missing git tags, it updates to the latest one when you makepkg.

@disastro Maybe people periodically flag this as outdated because of the date that is incorporated into the name of the package, "2017.02.04," and that shows up as the version when you search AUR for youtube-dl. Since as you say makepkg always pulls the latest code, with the latest commits (of which there are some frome even yesterday), is there a reason to have a date from more than a year ago in the name of the package? Perhaps this causes confusion.

Unflagged, please see the comment before this.
