That conversation took place nearly four years ago. I made the requested change back then (by moving the script to Dropbox).

There is therefore no need for me to use GitHub now. I won't be upset if you choose not to install this package as a result.

Brother Xavion,

Don't be an ass. Use GitHub. Lot of people will love you for that. It's the right thing to do. You do that, and I'll install your package.

As I'm the author of this little script, I will always want it to remain in the AUR.

Xavion commented on 2012-12-18 08:16

I still disagree that there's a need to host this script outside of the tarball. Nonetheless, I have made the change as requested to prevent any further crying.

My next comment is a repeat of a previous one, which has been deleted from here by TUs twice so far. Let's hope they don't feel the need to do so a third time.

Xavion: My apologies for disowning your package, the AUR does not let us re-assign the original maintainer. Please re-adopt the package.

You were asked multiple times to host the source on an external site. I have fixed this, most likely not to your satisfaction. You have 30 days to find a better host before pastie.org deletes it.

I see one of your projects is hosted on google code, so this is not an entirely alien concept to you.

Removing all the comments, as they don't really add anything to the information about the package.

xyproto commented on 2012-12-13 22:50

Your "well and truly qualified" statement is meaningless, unless you are aware of the qualifications of the people you talk to here, which I assume you are not. It's also offtopic.


Xavion commented on 2012-12-12 22:42

I don't think you'll be able to convince me that I should want to make this change. My opinion is that it's an isolated non-issue that has virtually zero impact on the system. For the record, I am well and truly qualified to make this judgement.

As noted below, I will make the change once you've informed me that the wording on the ArchWiki has been modified. The alternative is to tell me what the consequence will be if I don't do what you're asking. If it's severe enough, I will comply with your request.

xyproto commented on 2012-12-11 21:39

No need to insult. I'm saying that I want you to want to make this change, seeing that it makes the whole system better.
