@LinuxLoverForeve Don't see any way to verify if that repository is official or not?

I'm currently taking the situation one day at a time and seeing what happens until I'm willing to even entertain the idea of using an unofficial mirror. Everyone is free to use the PKGBUILD with their preferred mirror for it until then with their own risk but I would just suggest using youtube-dl from the repos.

Broken because github got a DMCA takedown request.

@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

FredBezies commented on 2015-11-27 20:20

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.

Smola commented on 2015-11-21 19:29

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.
