Wrong AUR Build file

tur-users mailing list
Hello people

Newbie here in Arch Linux.

I have a question, which I didn't find in the documentation.

What is the proposed way to inform about an AUR build file containing
errors? Especially if I e-mailed the maintainer with no response?

Thank you!

I would probably leave a comment over emailing directly.
If you get no response after a while I would then send an orphan/deletion
request detailing the problem and pick up the package myself and fix
the problems.

Picking up the package doesn't also have the great responsibility of
maintaining the package? :-o

Is it very problematic to do so?
I assume you're interested in the software, so why not maintain it while
you are at it?

Yes you would have that responsibility or maybe you could find
some one else to maintain it instead.
if the package is broken and you don't plan on maintaining it, that's
when I would send a deletion request.
Any one is free re upload the fixed package again in future.
