@SanskritFritz : it is simpler for me to give it up "fully". So, if Flu wants to own it, just a little mail and let's get it on ;)

FredBezies, you can give him co-maintainer role.

@flu : you want to adopt it ? Just tell me, I will orphan it for you.

About master zip, md5sums=(SKIP) is the solution, isn't it?
And, say, the date as pkgver. Like
Yes, this solution is awkward regarding commits, but may be a good idea anyway.

for some reason it installs empty /usr/etc/fish/completions and it kinda breaks fish's $__fish_sysconfdir as it starts to use /usr/etc/fish instead of /etc/fish

I won't do this for one reason. I would have to regenerate every single time md5sum of zip file. Using git repository is slower, but I don't have to run a makepkg -g > PKGBUILD every single time.

Also, youtube-dl is a very active project. 4 to 10 commits a day. So won't be usable for more than a day, and not buildable.

Just look at commit list on november 23, 2015. Only 12 commits.

A zip file could be a good idea, but only for stable releases.

I hope I answered you.

@mralext20 But contains exactly the same version of files as the git master branch. Am I wrong?

mralext20 commented on 2015-11-22 21:07

@Smola that would be using the binary instead of the git repo. there is already a binary package in the community repo.

Maybe we can switch source from git repo to zip download? Zip archive is like 100 times smaller than git repo.
Receiving objects: 100% (66367/66367), 104.52 MiB | 4.00 MiB/s, done.
Length: 1142089 (1.1M) [application/zip]
Or am I missing something here?

With the bug being resolved, I think there should be an update to the pkgver=.

I'm using 2015.09.22.r4.g19f93d9, where the bug is not present.
