In the latest release of this package I've introduced a workaround to force fresh downloads whenever we bump the package release number, not just the version. This should work around most people's caching issues resulting from upstream's replacing files without changing the filename or versions.

If you hit a checksum error now please flag this package as out of date.

I just updated to 13.00-6 with aurman and worked fine. If it did not I would have downloaded a snapshot and tried makepkg. Thank you.

Seems the package is failing because of validity checks

Validating source files with sha512sums... font-symbola-13.00.zip ... FAILED LICENSE.pdf ... Passed 

But built fine with makepkg

brianbrodsky12: AUR package managers are not supported, I recommend using makepkg or a clean chroot. From a cursory glance, I suggest cleaning your cache.

No still getting error, just tried again:

@caleb and @gawlinson Ahh gotcha and thank you both for the quick action/reply here, greatly appreciate you both :)

@brianbrodsky12 gawlinson got it fixed up pretty quick, just try again and should be good (I just confirmed all clear/good!)

brianbrodsky12 commented on 2020-03-24 22:18

I am also getting validity check error, how do I get around?

grawlinson commented on 2020-03-24 21:24

caleb: Added you as a co-maintainer, go wild!

F1nny: Thanks for the notification. :)

@F1nny The upstream doesn't use any file versioning and just posts a new zip file at the same name with updated contents. This makes it a pain to package, and the checksum serves as an "out of date flag", at which point the two sources need comparing to make sure there are not build changes (unlikely in this case) and then updating to whatever version the internal font files show now.

F1nny commented on 2020-03-24 19:17

Build failing due to validity check as the source file (Symbola.zip) has been modified for some reason (? curious on, but looks fine after checking/scanning)
