Hi All,

This is just to let you know that I have decided to orphan (and abandon) this package. I'm doing so purely because I've reverted to using the much improved 'yaourt'.

I created 'packer-color' to improve some of the shortcomings of 'packer', which had been designed as a replacement for the then old and decrepit 'yaourt'.

The latter has since been revamped, while 'packer' has remained stagnant. In particular, 'yaourt' now finds AUR package upgrades (via -Sua) in parallel (and it's much faster at doing so than 'packer' is).

Thanks for pointing that out; I've added some brackets around 'license'. I must've overlooked that omission when forking from 'packer' all those years ago.

Need to edit PKGBUILD to make the license an array during install, same with the zsh-packer-color, else it fails on the license not being an array ()

I'm not getting that here either. Maybe you've set a Git configuration flag that's interfering.

Perhaps this webpage will help: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14318234/how-to-ignore-error-on-git-pull-about-my-local-changes-would-be-overwritten-by-m

I'm not experiencing that problem here. When I extract the snapshot, all files are of type "ASCII text" (i.e. UNIX format). Accordingly, no EOL conversion is necessary before building the package.

When I downloaded the snapshot, I noticed that the patch didn't work because of line ending differences. I had to run dos2unix on the files so that it would work.

That was bound to happen at some point. The AUR v4 patch was no longer necessary; it has just been incorporated into 'packer'. As such, I have removed it from this package.
