Blobs in package

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hey all, I am the maintainer of the acroread package on the aur. As you
might know, if you use that program, it fails to run with newer versions
of harfbuzz and glib. So, as suggested by users on the bbs, I have
decided to bundle the needed libraries with acroread, but I have run
into a problem. When I try to push my patch to the aur, I get "maxium
blob size (250.00KiB) exceeded)." What would be the best way to bundle
the libraries? It doesn't feel right for me to put them up on my server.

TL;DR: What's the best way to bundle blobs with an aur package?

It is strictly forbidden to upload binary blobs to the AUR at all. The
AUR does *not* provide an arbitrary hosting service for source code and
binary release artifacts, and we limit the size of files that can be
uploaded in an attempt to prevent the most egregious offenders of "I'm
gonna upload binary blobs".

The size is calculated to make it extremely likely that even large
configuration data files that *are* permitted, like a kernel .config,
are still allowed.

Upload it to your server.

P.S. The suggested modifications referenced in the comments and
described on the forums, directly downloads the old libraries from
https://archive.archlinux.org so I'm not sure why you want to upload
them to the AUR.

Please use a modern PGP format, e.g. PGP/MIME rather than inline signatures.
